Pinot perfection

Rich, fleshy, silken textured pinot noir with density and power. Elegant wine with dark berry, cherry, spice and anise flavours. A very appealing wine that is great now but should develop with age. It’s a wine that’s been made with a very light touch to fully express the character of both site and vintage. Quite a heavy deposit of tartrate crystals. (Screwcap)
