The Rana is winemaker Nav Singh's flagship wine. Single vineyard fruit, whole bunch, wild ferment, basket pressed and matured in large format used oak vessels. The result is a stunning Pinot from one of Tasmania's best producers. Violet floral tones, together with sweet spice and pepper, sit over a core of red fruit and earth. The palate is well-structured with a clean acid line and firm, ripe tannins providing a framework for the fleshy fruit characters and gamey/meaty tones that follow through to the long finish. A Pinot that is equal parts power and restraint. Stunning. - Felix G
This is such an appealing wine for you Pinophiles out there. It's a living wine, it has personality and a heart beat... you can smell it. Domaine Simha follow biodynamic principles, to which this wine was made. It differs from the Rama as this is harvested on a flower day and the Rama is harvested on a fruit day. This wine is very reflective of the day it was harvested - aromatic, pretty, nuanced and elegant. The palate is much the same, with a seamless structure and complimentary acid structure. What a wine! Only 800 bottles produced - Chris L
