The flagship Pinot Noir of the Tawse Portfolio, the Cherry Ave vineyard consistently produces exceptional quality wines. The 2019 vintage is being hailed as a standout vintage for Pinot Noir. Generally cooler and wetter overall, a very warm and dry July and August assisted with ripening and concentrated fruit. Harvest took place later than usual to achieve optimal ripeness for the Pinot. The result is a fruit forward wine with notes of cherry, raspberry, rose petal, and cigar box.
The first vineyard purchased by Moray in 2000 and home to Tawse Winery. Made up of 3 blocks named after his children.
Tight planting on mixed loam and clay soil. Viticultural practices included vertical shoot positioning, shoot thinning, cluster thinning, hand leaf removal and hand harvest. Certified Organic and farmed biodynamically.
