This single vineyard wine has a lovely vibrant ruby hue. The nose is delicately perfumed with strawberry, dark cherry and a subtle, smoky oak character. The palate has vibrant flavours with noticeable depth and concentration but is beautifully balanced. An elegant wine with a fruity, fleshy mid-palate and long, chalky finish. This is a classic expression of this vineyard’s Pinot Noir.
Enjoy over the next five years.
