Light ruby-red colour with some depth and pale purple hues on the edge. The nose is softly full and gently voluminous with moderate depth of dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined with a subtle amalgam of nutty oak, dark herbs and suggestions of whole bunch stalk perfumes, unfolding nuances of red florals. Medium-bodied the fruit flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit are light and entwined with subtle spice notes, hints of liquorice, dark herbs and floral elements. The flavours are up-front and uncomplicated and flow smoothly, underlined by light, fine-grained tannins and integrated acidity. The flavours recede a little as the wine carries to a light, easy finish. This is an elegant dark-red cherry and berry fruited Pinot Noir with soft notes of spice and herbs on a smooth, supple, easy palate. Serve with antipasto, tapas, pasta, duck and pork over the next 3+ years. A barrel selection wine. Hand-picked fruit fermented with 10% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new oak. Ceritied BioGro organic.
