Pinot Noir 2023


Tasting Notes

Bright crimson colour.

Alluring aromas of wild strawberry, cherry, toffee and leafy notes. Medium bodied with lingering flavours of cherry and plum superbly integrated with fine tannins and spice on the finish.

Will accompany many styles of fine food and game dishes also well suited to cheese.

What the reviewers are saying

An enticing nose of ripe, dark cherry, violets, some toasty oak with a sweet mocha tinge and a spicy, pepper-dusted layer. The palate has lovely, supple, fleshy fruit, really smooth and even, quite concentrated cherry flavour, some blue fruits too. Tannins spread with a flurry through the finish. Nick Stock
