"Medium-bodied, the palate has rich and sweetly ripe fruit flavours of dark-red and black cherries melded with some liquorice, spices and nutty oak detail. The flavours are softly mouthfilling and the fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction lending texture and refined grip. The acidity is integrated and the wine carries along a velvety line to a lingering finish. This is a beautifully balanced, sweetly rich dark-red and black cherry fruited Pinot Noir with subtle herb, liquorice and spice notes on a fine-textured palate"
Domaine Rewa is a tiny 5.5 hectare vineyard located on the fluvial terrace nestled in the foothills of the Pisa Range.
Wanting to make the most of this special plot of land, Philippa Shepherd works with Grant Rolston, Gary Ford and winemaker Pete Bartle to pursue her dream of producing refined wines inspired by the elegance of Burgundy.
To ensure the Domaine remains the best possible custodian of the land, biodynamic land practices are deployed and the vineyards are fully certified BioGro Organic.
Even, dark ruby-red colour with youthful hues. The nose is elegantly proportioned with fresh, vibrant and fragrant aromas of dark raspberry and cherry fruit with lifted violet floral, unveiling subtle, savoury thyme herb nuances and subtle liquorice elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegant with a tight core of dark raspberry and cherry fruit, the flavours showing sweetness and lusciousness. The fruit is balanced by a fine-textured line and enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity, Some thyme herb and liquorice notes emerge to provide detail and interest, and the wine flows with energy to carry to a long, lingering finish of raspberries and thyme herbs.
