"Producer Notes: The Penfolds Cellar reserve style continues to evolve. Using a selection from high altitude, cool climate adelaide hills vineyards, a major winemaking objective is to craft a wine that is both complex while young, and yet has the capacity to evolve and mature admirably. as these hills' Pinot Noir vines age (especially those from selected new clones) and a balanced yield ensues, this marque can only improve. This release was hand picked and the various parcels were coldsoaked in open fermenters in the Magill Estate Winery for four days prior to fermentation, using natural yeasts. The base wines were taken off skins directly to barriques, where they remained on gross lees for eight months prior to the first racking. Press Notes: Wine Advocate # 167 Oct 2006 89 Points - Wine Advocate: Drink: 2006 - 2012 ""There are some terrific red wine bargains in Penfolds' portfolio. But first, some unusual, but successful reds are being released in the United States. The 2005 Pinot Noir Cellar Reserve (all from Adelaide Hills) displays an authentic Pinot Noir character in its bouquet of sweet and sour cherries, dried herbs, forest floor, and nicely integrated wood as well as acidity. Bottled unfined and unfiltered after spending nine months in equal parts new and old French barriques, it possesses a beautiful texture, surprising weight, and a European sensibility. This beauty demonstrates how far this estate's winemaking team has progressed in making high class Pinot. It should drink well for 5-6 years."""
