About:  Apricus Hill, established in 1995, is the highest vineyard in Denmark, on Western Australia's south coast.  At 750 feet above sea level and with panoramic views of the southern ocean, the vineyard experiences a true maritime effect with cooling ocean breezes, making it a true cool climate vineyard.  This is a small family vineyard creating small volumes of reserve quality wine.

This Pinot Noir is fermented in 1 tonne batches with twice daily plunging of the 'cap' formed by the grape skins.  Maturation for 10 months in new and second fill French oak on yeast lees has introduced a creamy mid palate texture.  In an effort to preserve the subtle complexities this wine has been bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes:  A vibrant lifted nose of black cherry and strawberry complemented by spicy vanilla French oak.  Bright red fruits combine with hints of darker plums and cherry with an earthy, gamey mid palate with hints of mushrooms and a spicy finish of soft tannins.
