Beguiling, moreish, tangy Pinoit Noir from an outstanding new producer. Richard doesn't want you to buy this because he wants all of it.
The WIne Advocate: "Pale ruby in color, the single vineyard 2012 Gower Pinot Noir spends 30 days on skins and is fermented with wild yeasts then aged in 30% new French oak. The nose has a pleasant perfume of red cherries, raspberries and roses accented by hints of wild thyme and fertile earth. The fruit is delicate in the mouth with very crisp acid somewhat dominating, though the tannins are fine and well managed and there is a good amount of lingering fruit and herb notes in the long finish. It’s an edgy wine – one for those that like a lot acid and herbs in their Pinots! Drink it now to 2017." 89+ points
The International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Sexy, spice- and floral-accented aromas of red berries and cherry skin, with a medicinal nuance emerging with aeration. Juicy and precise, with impressive energy and silky tannins adding grip to the persistent finish. " 92 points

Hazy red. Explosively perfumed scents of candied red fruits, incense and Asian spices, with a hint of smokiness building in the glass. Sweet, penetrating and pure, with excellent clarity and lift to its bitter cherry, raspberry and rose pastille flavors. Takes a darker turn with air and finishes on a gently tannic note, with outstanding focus and vivacity and lingering blackberry and spicecake qualities.
