"Willowlake Vineyard here. South facing slope in that vineyard, the wine sourced from two blocks. C4 and C1 are the blocks, which when put together surely is a Star Wars franchise droid.
Bright ruby coloured wine. Scents of pepper, sweet earth, green herb, red cherry and maraschino. Glossy yet crisp in texture. A nice slide of maraschino fruit flavours with more of the pepper and green herb, a lick of maltiness, a touch of tension amongst the slick of flavour, quite light-on despite the textural feel, good length of flavour too. There is a general sense of high drinkability and delicacy. Like this."

"Pinot noir is so high maintenance I have nightmares about it.
In the vineyard and cellar it puts serious pressure on you, but in the end it provides the greatest fun and reward.
Our 2018 Willowlake Pinot Noir, as always, shows spicy cherry, dark berry and campari notes. It’s a savoury, fine style with a soft toasty finish."
