Description

A medium bodied and beautifully balanced Marlborough Pinot Noir. The nose shows attractive notes of ripe plums and wild strawberries with a hint of cloves and spice. The palate displays supple red fruit flavours and soft, fine tannins. This wine has an elegant structure, silky texture and juicy acidity to give freshness, and it closes in a lingering finish.
