Pinot Noir 2015
Light and bright in colour with lifted beetroot and sweet soil earthiness alongside Morello cherry, African violet and thyme aromas. The palate is grippier and rounder than the colour suggests with chalky, rolling tannins and flavours of red cherries and herbes de Provence. An elegant, beautifully balanced Pinot Noir.
