50th Parallel Estate Unparalleled Pinot Noir 2019
The Unparalleled Series is our expression of luxury. We hold nothing back when creating this blend. Truly our maximum expression of Pinot Noir and all its great nuances. Terroir and fruit expression are accented by the finest French barrel coopers.
This small-batch wine is built on the various foundations we see in our estate soils and Pinot Noir clones. Block 3, clone 667 and 115 supply classic red fruit aromas and structured tannin, while block 6, clone 943 provides deep colour and intensely pure fruit expression. These are coupled with our favourite barrel cooperages to accent subtle baking spice and cedar box aromas.
