Very bright cherry red in colour. Deliciously fruity nose of red fruit
such as cherry, redcurrant and pomegranate. The mouth is pure,
fresh, and upright with fine tannins whose structure gives good
balance and great persistence. The first palate of citrus and hints of
exotic fruit is followed up by red fruit aromas. The 2021 vintage has
given us a magnificent rendering of this northern variety in a southern
terroir, in a Pinot Noir of great allure and formidable personality.
