Salivating minerality persists. Black Estate Dampsteep Pinot Noir 2015 Silken, rich and expansive fruit flow across the palate with savory underlying tannin giving tension and power. Flavors of dark clay with a strong mineral line that is saline and persistent give an impression of white rock and elevation. Black Estate Home Chardonnay 2016 From the 23 year old original Black Estate vineyard. A balanced and dense yet luminous wine. Aromas of white peach, nectarine, blood orange, oatmeal, subtle hazelnut, white rock minerals. Broad & dense, with an even textured clay wave across the palate. An underlying salty minerality that lingers and persists. Black Estate Home Pinot Noir 2015 Red and black forest fruit, with black current and raspberry, wild rose and subtle fresh spice. Berry fruits are rich and broad, sensual and luscious with underlying savoury earth and gentle but persistent minerality.
