Savoury aromas of dark berry fruit and herb with subtle roasted nut notes. The palate is lively with ripe blackberry and red cherry fruit flavours, balanced by subtle tannins and a smooth mouthfeel. Ageing in oak barrels has given rise to some light nutty oak elements. A medium weight Pinot Noir with an elegant finish and balanced acidity.An easy to drink wine that leaves you wondering how you finished the first glass so easily. Best enjoyed with hearty full-flavoured dishes such as Moroccan lamb tagine or braised beef short ribs. 13% Alcohol.
“Made in a style that genuinely reflects the Pinot Noir grape (not just a red wine) with balance and flavour”. This quote is what we use as the guiding principle for this Pinot Noir. Most of the blend is tipped into open-top fermentation tanks for preferment soak prior to the fermentation starting naturally with indigenous yeast, another portion is tank fermented with pump over, then a very small portion is kept as whole berries and sealed for carbonic maceration fermentation. Once the fermentations have finished, a partial micro-oxygenation is started which helps the wine to remain softer and rounder earlier.
