2018 Milton Pinot Noir $38

Milton Pinot Noir is produced from grapes grown on the Milton homestead block, planted in 1998, and from the earlier (1992) planted vines grown on the stony red soils of the Cranbrook block. The Milton property was first farmed in 1826 for wool. In 2005 the current custodians Kerry and Michael Dunbabin began producing wines under their own label. This vintage is bold and bright with lots of bouncy deep dark cherry flavours and spiciness on the finish. Very perfumed with soft alluring notes of violet, musk and spice. Gentle to taste with delicate tannins and a fine elegant structure and very good balance. A great wine to savor with a range of foods. 13.8 % alc./vol.

2017 Milton Reserve Pinot Noir $58

Only in exceptional years do we make our Family Reserve. 2017 was an exceptional year. Our 2017 Dunbabin Family Reserve Pinot Noir is a wonderful wine with floral notes of violets overlaying the complex earthy notes of forest floor and mushrooms. This elegant wine is made from a special blend of D4V2 and MV6 and the oldest vines on the property planted in 1992 in the premium block at the top of the hill overlooking the cellar door. The longer time in new and older Burgundy oak barrels lifts the wine with lovely savoury truffle flavours hinting at the future this wine will have with judicious cellaring for 8 plus years. Smooth with savoury soft spice and earthiness, and a soft seamless silkiness in the mouth with a density of flavours. Elegant and sophisticated, best with lamb or duck.
