Light ruby-red colour with some depth and paler garnet hues on the edge. The nose is fresh and vibrant with voluminous aromas of red cherry and berry fruit along with subtle notes of spicy oak, nuanced of dried herbs, unfolding lifted red florals. Medium-bodied, the palate has softly rich flavours of strawberries and red cherries, intermixed with lifted red florals, spicy oak and dried herbal complexities. The fruit is sweetly luscious and juicy, and is enlivened by lacy acidity, and underlined by fine-grained, supple tannin extraction. This carries with good richness to a bright and spicy, lingering finish. This is a softly rich and vibrant Pinot Noir with strawberry and cherry fruit, with spicy oak notes on a fine-structured palate. Match with wild duck and pork over the next 6 years.
