SKU: N/A Category:

Colour

Light red colour with some depth and garnet hues on the rim.

Aroma

The nose is soft, full and well-packed with aromatic and fragrant aromas of red berry fruits entwined with dark herb and red floral notes, unfolding a little savoury earthiness with aeration.

Ageing Potential

Serve with wild duck and pork, and casseroles over the next 3+ years.

Palate

Medium-bodied, the palate is brisk and racy with lively fruit flavours of savoury red berry fruits melded with fresh, dark herbs with some red floral detail.  The fruit forms a moderately deep and dense core, with supple tannins in support.  The wine flows with good energy to a lingering, savoury red-fruited finish with herbal nuances.  This is a brisk and racy Pinot Noir with moderately concentrated savoury red berry fruit, herband earthy detail with supple textures.

Winemaking
