93/100 Cameron Douglas MS
“Quite a complex bouquet with layers of light red fruit and earth scents, soft brown spices and mild toasty wood, then dried rose and soft leather. Palate impressions of fine tannins and medium acidity, flavours of strawberry and cherry, red apple skin and dried rose. Flavours, textures and complexity are persistent adding length and depth with a soft savoury and nutty oak finish. Balanced and well made. Ready. Best drinking upon release and through 2024+” – Cameron Douglas MS
Tasting Note: The three clones of Pinot Noir grapes grown at grava are the Dijon clones 115 and 777 and Abel (the “gumboot” clone). The Pinot Noir wines made are clone blends – offering optimum aroma and flavour characteristics, making grava Pinots excellent examples from a region famous for this variety. The 2018 grava Pinot Noir shows complex savoury and fruit aromas, followed by a well-structured palate with a long, elegant finish. This wine has not been fined or filtered.
