Tasting notes on the 2016 vintage:
'Matured for nine months in French oak, 20% new. Attractive oak notes before red and black cherries, musk and some pleasant evolved character. Deep, rich and full on the palate – sweet fruit, bright acidity and silky tannins before a good dry finish. Drinking well now.' – Winemag Prescient Pinot Noir Report 2020, Top 10

'The ‘noir’ is ‘pinot’, from highest block on farm. Elegant 2016 lovely red berry aromas, earthy & savoury notes reflecting a subtle oak treatment, 20% new for 9 months.' – Platter's Guide, 4*

'Whether a mystical pagan goddess of feminine power such as Isis, or the popular Catholic of the Virgin Mary with a darker complexion as reflected in artwork around the world, the Black Madonna or Black Virgin is an apt name for our Pinot Noir. This wine shows cool climate poise and elegance with an earthy and bright fruit character.This vintage expresses the typical earthy and savoury aroma of this fine Burgundy variety and is backed by a red fruit character. A greater selection clones and blocks during picking and older elements in the blend shows a darker and more textured style in bottle from previous vintages.' – Winemaker
