This is a bright and juicy Pinot Noir with luscious aromas of raspberry and black plum. Oak aging adds a spicy complexity to a typical Pinot Noir, characters of plum and violets form a soft tannin structure.
“Made in a style that genuinely reflects the Pinot Noir grape (not just a red wine) with balance and flavour”. This quote is what we use as the guiding principle for this Pinot Noir. Most of the blend is tipped into open top fermentation tanks for pre ferment soak prior to the fermentation starting naturally with indigenous yeast, another portion is tank fermented with pump over, then a very small portion is kept as whole berries and sealed for carbonic maceration fermentation. Once the fermentations have finished, a partial micro oxygenation is started which helps the wine to remain softer and rounder earlier.
Hearty full-flavoured dishes such as Moroccan lamb tagine or braised beef short ribs.
