ASSESSMENT

Colour:  Mid red colour.

Bouquet: The aromas from this wine show true Pinot Noir character. Strawberry and cherry fruits are backed by a complex and creamy gaminess. There are also hints of spice, stalks, and some charry barrel ferment characters all combining to give the wonderful complex aromas you would expect from good Pinot Noir.

Palate: The front palate shows the cherry and strawberry fruit characters. There is a silky texture and wonderful balance running through the mid palate, with the quality French oak adding subtle charry characters. The tannins are fine and balanced, combining with a tight acid structure to give a long, lingering and powerful finish. The light gaminess adds complexity, which will continue to develop with age.

FOOD ACCOMPANIMENT

Perfect with duck but also try with lamb, chicken and mild Asian dishes.   

CELLARING POTENTIAL

Will continue to improve and develop complexity with age; cellar for 6 to 8 years.
