Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Vibrant youthful fruit aromas of plums, dark cherries and strawberries accompanied by a hint of spice govern the aromatics of this Pinot Noir.

Palate

The perception of sweet red fruits lead the palate into a gentle rounded wine that delivers the same youthful fruit characteristics as the nose with an overlaying but delicate toast and spice array.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

There is an abundance of sour cherries, allspice and cinnamon on the nose. Perfumed and pretty, savoury and spicy. The palate is intense cherries with more spice and a touch of stem. Good texture and length, My only issue is a lack of acidity but that actually accentuates the warmth and velvety texture.

Perfect as the weather cools. Drink with roast duck with spicy pomegranate sauce.
