Regular Price $30.00
Ripe plum, spice, earthy aromas. Fresh mid-palate. Finishes with spicy oak.
ORGANIC | VEGAN
Deep dark crimson in colour. The nose promises ripe plum and berry fruit, intertwined with some toasty oak, spice and earthy aromas.
On tasting, there’s an initial burst of juicy berry fruit and plums, leading through to a fresh mid-palate before finishing with even tannins and flavours of spicy oak.
This vibrant Pinot Noir is full of flavour, balance and complexity. It should reward careful cellaring for 4-6 years.
"Complex and inviting, the bouquet shows dark berry, smoked game, thyme, warm spice and nutmeg aromas, followed by a nicely rounded palate that is elegantly weighted and smooth. The wine offers sweet berry flavours together with rich savoury notes, well supported by fine, polished tannins. At its best: now to 2020." 90/100, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Nov 2018
