Tasting Notes

Intense, vivid translucent youthful purple-ruby appearance. On the palate there are very pure Pinot fruit flavours on entry with red cherry and musk flavours coupled with fresh acidity. The wine has layered complexity with great elegance and finesse. Very fine lacy, almost powdery tannin on the finish.

Food Pairing

Ideally served at 16°-18°C. White and red meats, Parma ham, grilled line fish, Tuna, wild mushrooms and traditional cheeses

Cellaring Notes

Up to 2018, provided wine is stored in ideal cellar conditions.

Vinification

Fermentation is done in small stainless steel cuvees with regular pillage for gentle extraction. The wine was matured in 52% new Allier Hogsheads and 48% second fill Hogsheads for 12 months before bottling.
