Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma - Aromas of ripe plum and dark berry fruits are complimented with a hint of spice and earthiness.

Palate - Smooth tannins support the flavours of dark cherry and spicy plum with hints of spice and brambles adding a layer of complexity. A delicate balance of acidity and tannin make this a wine which will age gracefully

Cellaring - This is a very approachable wine for drinking today but with enough structure and richness to develop with ageing

Food Matching - This intense Pinot Noir is a great match for venison steaks or roast duck.
