Pinot Noir is a fickle varietal that demands the utmost attention, both in the vineyard and in the winery to bring its true potential to the fore. It has many guises, from soft and supple to powerful and masculine and everything in between. Pinot Noir is an incredibly honest varietal, telling the story of its own unique place of origin like no other.

Winery Tasting Notes
Deep ruby with a youthful purple hue on the rim.
Initially dark and brooding, you are greeted on the nose with notes of bramble and spice, quickly opening up to reveal dark berry fruits, sour cherry, freshly tanned leather and subtle charry oak.
The entry to the palate is rich, with sweet berry fruits nicely balanced by mouth-watering juicy acidity. Firm but fine tannins frame the mid palate, with suggestions of cherry cola and dried herbs falling away to give a lingering finish of fresh forrest berries and cream.
Braised goat shoulder with creamy polenta.
