Signature roast chicken savoury aspect and briny oyster shell with fresh sea spray, roasted nuts and a richness of red fruit meaty depth. Definitely showing Pinot Noir muscularity, while retaining elegance and sharp, fine lines. Long dried cherry red fruit drive, with a touch of oak spice and delicious texture. The acidity cuts and pulses and camps on the teeth while the autolytic layers provide a creamy richness. Bound to be found under the RRP.
Rating: 19/20 (95/100)
