Pretty colour, ruby core, the fruit is very much to the fore on the nose, almost stewed red fruits, with a hint of herbal freshness. The palate is rounded, generous and fruit-driven initially, a touch of raspberry and mulled cherry. Then the tannins kick in, the wine tightening and showing grip, structure and stony minerality. A hint of menthol is a nod toward the limestone soil. The impression is of a generous, elegant and balanced Pinot, well structured, a fine tannin structure, good acidity and a long fragrant finish.
