Our 2016 Grande Reserve is an expertly blended selection of our finest barrels and represents the pinnacle of winemaking at Privato.  Harvested from the Lake Country area, the grapes for this limited release wine were whole cluster fermented before aging 18 months in French oak followed by an additional 18 months in the bottle.  This wine will only improve with aging for several more years.  Earthy tones of Morel mushrooms, wild thyme and sage intermingle with aromas of prune plums.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Earthy, spicy and toasty oak on the nose with hints of Morel mushrooms, wild sage, thyme and raspberry intermingled with aromas of Prune plums. On the palate the wild warm raspberry continues with its rich flavour that lingers on a velvety and generous finish. To enjoy now please decanter to ensure you truly experience the uniqueness of this wine. This wine will age well for a good 7 to 10 years.
Winemaker Notes
This single vineyard Pinot Noir represents the pinnacle of winemaking at Privato. Harvested from the Lake Country area, 50% of the grapes for this limited release wine were whole cluster fermented before aging 18 months in French oak followed by an additional 18 months in the bottle. This wine will only improve with ageing for several more years. An earthy, spiced nose opens to ripe raspberry and dark cherry flavours that linger on a velvety and generous finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pinot is well known for being an extremely food-friendly wine. This Grande Reserve has rich character and structure. While it would pair wonderfully with Boeuf Bourguignon. It is equally elegant with a decadent arugula wood-fired pizza drizzled with creamy sauce.
