TATING NOTES

Using traditional winemaking techniques for Pinot Noir has enabled us to produce a wine that expresses its sense of place.  Soft red berry fruits along with toasty and savoury spice notes capture the aromatic profile.  The palate is broad and silky smooth.

Drink now or cellar for three to four years.
