Crittenden Estate 'Kangerong' Pinot Noir 2022


At up to 47 years of age, the vines are amongst the oldest in the region and this vine maturity undoubtedly confers something special on what is eventually put in the bottle. This wine walks the middle ground between being fruit driven and more complex and structured. There is a faint but appealing sappy character that has nothing to do with stems in the ferment, but more to do with the berry size at maturity ie small. The texture is rich and structured with soft tannins and a good acid finish.
