Dusty plum purple colour, this charming wine offers sweet ripe plums, cinnamon, cola and beetroot, with traces of sour cherries on the nose that replay on the taste. Hints of mocha and cured meats grab your attention on the back end, amid silky smooth tannins.

This lovely medium ruby in color Pinot Noir opens up with sweet and sour cherry, plums, strawberry, cola, cinnamon and sweet oak. The mouthfeel is lively with fresh acidity, generous alcohol at 14.5% and silky smooth tannins. The finish is medium length with flavours of vanilla, sweet oak and crush strawberry. A Pinot Noir that is lacking finesse and complexity at this price, but the aromatics and mouthfeel are very pleasant. Enjoyable but not memorable.
