Highfield Estate has triumphed at the 2005 Sydney International Wine Competition "Best Pinot Noir of Competition".

The grapes for this wine were hand-picked from low yielding vineyards then de-stemmed and fermented in open-top tanks. Maturation in French oak barriques for eleven months has nicely married the warm berry flavours with fine tannins making a generous and well structured wine.

Colour: Clear bright garnet and ruby tones. Aroma: Blackberry and cherry with a fresh earthy character. Palate: Generous, filling texture with fine tannins and persistent fruit.

Fermentation: Whole berry in open top tanks and hand plunged with a maturation of 11 months maturation in French Oak barriques.

An enjoyable match with New Zealand spring lamb and also a good red wine to serve with grilled fish, particularly salmon.
