William Downie Bull Swamp 2023 750ml

Bull Swamp

This dry-grown vineyard was planted in 1981 on old, red volcanic soils at 150m elevation. There are four separate parcels of Pinot Noir, two north-facing blocks of MV6 and another of Abel, as well as a more sheltered south-facing block of MV6. A deeply complex wine with aromas of blackberry, dark cherry, plum pudding and wood spice. The palate is rich and very finely structured. Extremely approachable for a young wine but with plenty of potential for ageing.
