A very warm vintage has produced a Pinot Noir displaying perfumed ripeness with piercing clarity; dark fruits of the forest dominate the aroma and these are underpinned by lifted floral and spice notes. The wine has an aromatic front palate, which displays these same characters in abundance. The mid palate is elegant and precise, and the wine flows beautifully into a textural finish, framing fine-grained tannin, fruit and acidity.
