On the nose has abundant aromas of dark red fruits with a liquorice undercurrent. Exuberant and densely concentrated, the lively palate has notes of cherry liqueur and macerated plums which are all bound together with firm, textural tannins.
Stemming from our French heritage our vineyard has incorporated high density planting to encourage competition between vines and restrain vigour. This natural vigour control means that the vines put more energy into the grapes, rather than the canopy, concentrating on the berries. The younger Pinot vines on our estate are situated on 3 different soil types. All our Pinot Noir is handpicked in the cool, early mornings to retain fruit integrity.
This wine is a great pairing for a summer BBQ with a fresh tomato salad.
