A medium ruby red Pinot Noir that is clear and bright. Aromas of bright red fruit, such as red cherries and raspberries with a subtle hint of clove spice, licorice and earthy notes. A medium bodied wine with a soft tannin structure and delicate flavours of red berries.
Lovely new world style that is berry fruit driven, fresh and bright.

100% Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir berries remained uncrushed to minimize tannin extraction from seeds and fermented with a select burgundy yeast strain. During fermentation, 3 pump overs a day were completed for delicate fruit and colour extraction.
Barrel maturation for 10 months in 225 litres barrels. 50% French & 50% American oak barrels.
25% of this was new French oak barrels in combination with 4th fill (50%) and 6th fill (25%) barrels were used.
Food Pairing Notes
The Pinot Noir will pair well with salmon, chicken, pasta dishes or even with a light summer salad.
