In 1969, brothers Bob and Steve Miller found a parcel of land they immediately knew had incredible potential for grape growing. Their vision was simple, to develop a vineyard that would be acknowledged as amongst the most recognised vineyards of the world. It took them four years of hard work to set up the 121 hectares of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The combination of rocky soils, cool climate and ocean influence as well as the talented winemaker, Trey Fletcher, make the Bien Nacido wines a superb, handcrafted range whose pedigree is simply unparalleled.
Roasted beef, chipped asphalt and black currant conspire for a very deep and brooding but not overly powerful nose on this bottling from winemaker Trey Fletcher. The palate pops with thyme, rosemary, dried flowers and pepper, with the tangy black plum fruit only emerging with patience. Built to last.more
