PINOT NOIR

TASTING NOTES

Striking aromas and flavors with just 1/4 of the oak compared to our other reds. Bright, fresh red berry fruits with a hint of spice and soft velvety tannins.

Ruby red

AROMA

Spice, cherry and strawberry with subtle oak undertones

PALATE

Juicy cherry, rhubarb and spice with soft tannins and a lingering finish

WINEMAKER NOTES

Specially selected parcels of Pinot Noir were cold soaked for 2 days to extract the desired flavors and aromas whilst minimizing harsh tannins. Fermented on skins for 5-7 days, the wine was gently pressed and just a small portion was aged on medium toast French for a plush round wine with a subtle hint of oak. A little Merlot was added to the final blend enhancing the Pinot’s bright cherry flavors and lengthening tannins. 

food match

Seared duck breast, wild mushroom risotto or a selection of soft cheese.
