The essence of a great Pinot noir is the purity of fruit and the structure of the wine. This wine has this essence, substantiated by its natural acidity. The colour has a wonderful luminosity, reminiscent of ripe cherries. The nose holds a combination of red berry, spice, mushrooms and dark chocolate. The palate is a continuation of all found on the nose. Structured and poised, with a tantalising mineral core. The natural acidity makes it a perfect partner with a diversity of dishes. Game fish, game birds and venison work very well, as does grilled beef and strong, hard cheese.
