  • Lifted florals
  • Subtle savoury notes

"Light, fresh, supple and appealing Pinot Noir with dark cherry, red-fleshed plum, raspberry and delicately spicy flavours. Smooth-textured wine that's deliciously accessible. A charming wine that offers value at this price" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Mar 2020

Bright cherry colour in the glass. An abundance of bright red fruits, and lifted floral aromas, with a touch of savouriness. This Central Otago Pinot Noir is lavishly layered with sweet, ripe, red berries, underpinned with savoury characters and a touch of spice. Supple tannins flow softly across the palate. These are balanced by the wines acidity, leading to a long fruit driven finish. A style that has been deliberately made to drink as a young fresh red.

100% French oak barrel maturation for 7 months. 10% new with the balance in older wood.
