Description/ Tasting NotesWith Pinot Noir the fruit is always the primary focus. Each vineyard block is harvested as a separate parcel and treated individually at each stage of the winemaking process. This enables us to tailor traditional winemaking techniques to the wine, providing elegance and complexity. We use a combination of barrel and tank fermentation and mature the wine in a range of new and older French oak. Elegant, cool climate Pinot Noir at its best. Fragrant, soft and flavourful, with aromas of ripe cherries and sweet fruit tannins that provide structure and length.
