Tasting Notes
Intense yet translucent magenta-purple in colour. The nose has lifted scents of autumn fruit, wild strawberry, musky perfume and a distinct minerality. The palate is medium bodied with pure Pinot Noir fruit flavours of plum and red cherry supported by an ultra-fine, densely textured tannin structure which adds to the volume and vivacity of the wine.
Ageing Potential
Up to 10 years, provided wine is stored in ideal cellar conditions.
