Nocton Pinot Noir

Nocton Pinot noir

"Made from a mix of MV6 and D5V12 clones, this is a stunning wine, but a rather deceptive one. First whiff, first taste, and nothing really jumps out. A few moments later, all manner of complexities and characters start to filter through. An array of perfumes emerge. Dark cherries, plums, warm earth, tobacco leaf, beetroot and more. A wine which manages to offer depth and gravitas at the same time as it sings like a Disney classic. This single vineyard wine is utterly seamless, hedonistically textured and has great length, throughout which the intensity never wavers for a moment.
