2022 Sato Pinot Noir Bannockburn

Login to view price.

A new wine for 2022, Yoshiaki and Kyoko are now sourcing fruit from the BioGro certified Domain Road Vineyard in Bannockburn as part of their négoce (bought fruit) range.

The wine is intense in aroma, colour and flavour, with deep purple-blue fruits, beautifully structured and fine-grained tannins, and a concentration of flavour and length we haven't yet seen before! More fruitful and less savoury than Northburn, this wine is a delicious and unique addition to their lineup!
