Soft acid, with restrained elegance. Notes of dried bay leaf and fresh raspberries.

The Tarraford Vineyard is a star in the making for chardonnay and pinot noir.
It’s a pinot noir for dyed-in-the-wool pinot lovers. It’s bright, exotic and rabid with all of sweet, sour and savoury flavours. I reckon it’s beautiful. It has lots of tantalising acidity, too, and a fine assertion of succulent, grippy tannin.
Slightly smoky, sawdusty aftertaste – in the most positive of ways. It would be great to drink this with one of the wood-fired pizzas they serve at the fabulous Giant Steps cellar door and restaurant.
