(2012 Vintage) A cool vintage has produced a Pinot Noir displaying delicious perfumed aromatics with piercing clarity; dark red and black fruits of the forest dominate the aroma and these are underpinned by lifted floral notes. The wine displays lovely elegance and flow with striking precision and clarity. On the palate it kicks off with a plush dense fruit of the forest entry, this plushness then moves beautifully into the mid palate, after which fine elegant textural tannins frame fruit and acidity on a lengthy finish.
