A juicy, fuller style Pinot Noir this offers plenty of typical cherry and plum fruits flavours, a savoury mid palate with beetroot and earthy notes rounded out by cedar oak on the back palate. The wine has full ripe tannins and firm acid giving the wine great structure.

"Expressive, complex and fragrant bouquet of violets, plums and strawberry fruits. There is a hint of sappiness with spice and cedar oak. The pallet is full and seductive with juicy ripe plum and cherry fruits. There is a savoury backbone with spice and earthy notes. The tannins although firm are fine grained giving great structure to the wine which will develop and age beautifully over the next 8 to 10 years." - Scotchmans Hill.
