Medium garnet ruby. Proper Pinot Noir flex with dark cherry and strawberries, high toned bitter orange citrus, smoky char, brittle fallen leaf, black pepper and savoury kitchen herbs. Carries its dark red fruit with a savoury leathery, balsamic tone and a chary finish. Finely structured with easy poise. Missing a little x-factor for higher points.

RRP: $48
Alc: 12.7%
Rating:  17.5/20 (90/100)
