Pinot Noir

Pinot NoirWinemakers Tasting Notes

An elegant and complex Pinot Noir with lifted aromas of bright cherry and berry fruits, savoury oak and wild thyme influences. Silky and textural, the palate is rich and full with dark berry fruits and an underlying bramble and spice aspect Gentle acidity frames the ripe, silky, tannins for a lovely, lingering, finish.

Cellaring

Drinking well in it’s youth this wine will reward further careful cellaring.

Suggested Food Pairing

Venison Ragoût, Grilled Sirloin Steak or a Mushroom Risotto.

90 Points: Wine Spectator

Opens with a note of fresh earth, followed by loamy accents to the core of wild strawberry, cherry, sage and toasted cumin seed. Features polished tannins, good intensity and a long, expressive finish.”
