  • Tasting Notes

    Aromas:

    Lifted Floral Notes: Enchanting hints of vanilla blossom and a bouquet of fragrant wild flowers set the stage.

    Vibrant Fruit Flavours: A harmonious blend of red and dark fruits, creating a lively and enticing aroma.

    Palate:

    Complexity: Each sip reveals layers of spice and smokey undertones, adding depth and intrigue.

    Texture: The palate is soft yet elegant, with a refined tannic structure that is both smooth and sophisticated.

    Finish: Enjoy a long, juicy, earthy finish that lingers, leaving a memorable impression.

    Aging Potential:Flirtatious and Reserved: While already impressive, this Pinot Noir holds much in reserve, promising further development and complexity with aging.

    This wine is a delightful experience now, but also holds great potential for those who can wait, offering more rewards with time.
