Winery Tasting Notes
Dark red with pale purple hues.Lovely ripe pinot noir nose – black cherry, pomegranate, spicy whole –bunch stems, light musky floral give lift and perfume. Complex and dimensional not just simple and fruity.
The palate is laced with rhubarb, cherry pie, vanilla, spicy cherry and plum sauce all bound in a soft, juicy, expansive texture. Tannins are aldente – a light twiggy whole bunch twang that carries the wine to a savoury, lip smacking finish.
