This is not a wimpy Pinot. Our Pinot Noir is bold with beautiful colour, good structure and lots of earthy tones. On the nose it displays raspberry, pomegranate, red licorice, spices, and watermelon. As if those aromas aren’t tempting enough, you are then treated to elegant and supple tannins and flavours of red cherry, raspberry, baking spices, strawberry and a hint of cola.
