This vintage we celebrate Block 25 from Clone MV6 (Mother Vine 6) from some of our oldest vines at the Kayena Vineyard. These 20-year-old vines have produced a beautifully balanced and generous Pinot Noir with great structure, finesse, and length.

    From Block 25 of Kayena Vineyard, MV6 clone; destemmed, cold soak; open fermented; matured for 12 months in French barriques (17% new). Aromatic and powerful, with layers of dark cherry and plum fruit, and positive tannins. Built to go the distance, but its balance makes it an each-way proposition.

    The fruit for this wine comes from a single block on Tamar Ridge’s Karena vineyard which is planted to the Pinot Noir clone MV6; known for its dark fruits and structure. Cherries and raspberries erupt from the glass powered by deeper notes of clove-studded oranges and cinnamon. On the palate it’s so silky. It glides seamlessly in your mouth delivering fruit and spice to every taste bud – every single one! There is structural tannin but it’s wrapped in rose petals and fresh, perfectly ripe, red currants. Time in the glass develops earthy, roasted plums and the sweet/savoury spice of toasted fennel seeds.

This wine is crafted from Pinot Noir grapes grown in Block 25 of our Kayena Vineyard. We specifically selected the MV6 clone, also known as Mother Vine 6, which is renowned for its deep colour, structure, and robust fruit flavours. The grapes were destemmed and underwent a cold soak before undergoing malolactic fermentation. Following fermentation, the wine was aged for 12 months in French oak; 17% of which was new.
