The O’Leary block consistently produces our most intensely flavoured and structured pinot noir. The generous 2016 vintage produced a complex and powerful wine, with a palate driven equally by savoury spice and ripe red cherries and raspberries. Herbaceous aromas of raspberry leaf and sous bois combine deliciously to layer the wine with an earthy complexity. Generous tannins are fine boned and rest harmoniously with soft nuances of oak, to culminate in a rich and lingering finish. This especially excellent vintage has produced a wine which will reward cellaring.

Reviews

2013 O’Leary Block Pinot Noir, 96 pts James Halliday 
“The fragrant cherry blossom bouquet heralds the red fruits of the elegant, but intense, palate, with nuances of forest floor providing the framework for the long, lingering finish.”
