Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
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.

Winemaker Notes
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.
