TASTING NOTE

Perfumed and floral nose of rose petals, black cherries, raspberries, a hint of orange peel and forest floor. The palate is textured, succulent and complex, with a long savoury finish. Vibrant acidity and fine grained chalky tannins make this a powerful and exceptional age worthy wine. This is classic, focussed Pinot Noir.

WINEMAKING

The grapes were berry selected on a sorting table, destemmend and gently crushed. The must fermented in stainless steel tanks at 28°C, with regular punch downs during the fermentation. After malolactic fermentation, the wine matures for 12-14 months in 300 liter French oak barrels with 25% new.
