Holm Oak’s flagship wine which is only made in exceptional vintages. A blend from only two barrels. Stalky and savoury in style and loaded with cherry fruit flavours. It has beautiful richness and purity of varietal character with classic cherry and plum aromatics.
Holm Oak has made only two vintages of this Pinot Noir to date – 75% is whole bunch fermented, meaning it has more savoury complexity than the other Pinots, and the fruit sits in the strawberry spectrum, as opposed to the cherry spectrum. This wine has beautiful velvety texture that will continue to build in the medium term (5 years). It’s difficult to give an end date to cellaring as this wine has only been made for a short time. At the least, it can be cellared for 10 years.
