2017 Reserve Pinot Noir
2017 Pinot Noir
Visual: Deep, intense and bright red ruby colour with medium-heavy legs. Nose: Elegant, complex and refined bouquet of red fruit with notes of cherry, raspberry and dried rose flowers and nuances of dried leaves, mushrooms and earthiness. After aeration, the second nose displays notes of wild blackberries, oak spice and hints of minerality. Palate: The attack is firm, rich and intense wild red berries with an elegant tension of minerality, restrained tannins and a round texture. The midpalate is full with great fruit weight on notes of ripe black cherries, toasted oak, dry flowers with nuances of gaminess. The structure remains tight and fresh with a core of mature tannins and a lush texture. The final is long and persistent with great fruit intensity, an endless freshness and hints of oak tannins and flavours.
