From the tiny vineyard of Tomboy Hill, first planted in 1984, comes Evie’s Picking Pinot Noir. A single vineyard wine made in minuscule quantities from that original vineyard, Evie’s Picking is a stunning and expressive red on the richer side of the Pinot spectrum.
Made in small batches with intense care and consideration, the nose on Evie’s Picking is redolent with black cherry and spice. On the palate, expect jammy notes of ripe red strawberry and glacé cherry.
Compelling for its breadth and depth of flavour from black cherries and olives, woodsy spices, really slurpy, sturdy though, with fine-sandpaper-like tannins. There's a slight herbal edge, not green or unripe, more rosemary, cardamom and pine-needles adding intrigue but sitting on the top - might melt into the wine in time, it should have some of that on its side. Only 75 dozen.
