This wine manages to ooze with rich, hedonistic luxury at the same time as delivering racy, citrus acidity. Warm, savoury aromas. Ground black pepper, blood orange and crystallised rose petal. Horse sweat on leather hints at some lingering (but not unattractive) reductive character - present but softened. Vibrant, juicy red cherry and cranberry core. High-toned, fine-tuned. Crunchy sweet blueberry overlays broody notes of black cherry, liquorice, freshly ground coffee and cloves. That sublime earthy mushroom quality of Pinot Noir comes through after some time in the glass. Manages to be classic yet entirely New World all at once - forges its own, unique identity.


Tasting Notes

We've been sitting on the stock of this wine for a few months before releasing it, while we wait for the specatular aromas and flavours in this wine to emerge. This is probably the best vintage yet for Red Claw. The vines are older now and the wine more intense, with more of the ethereal, haunting characteristics of Pinot Noir. It's really good. 94 Points - James Halliday.
