Matured in French oak. Semi translucent, slightly cloudy red colour with a light vibrant red hue. A mix of red and sour cherries, fresh herbs and clove greets the nostrils followed by some forest floor and spicy cedar notes. Light in body bright red cherry and winter strawberry fruits are underpinned by energetic acidity with some spicy cedar, forest floor and dried floor elements also evident. Fine grained tannins with an elegant red fruited conclusion.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Other Reviews….
A more accessible wine than its stubborn whole-bunch pinot sibling. As it should be, given the price. But drinking this light-weighted pinot only asserts the virtues of sappy fruit – all red cherry and sassafras – judicious use of bunches and a modest amount of oak serving to compress the fruit, rather than extolling its excess. This is far from complex, but delicious drinking in leu of regional climatic challenges. Drink by 2027.
