This is a new world expression of an old world varietal. This Pinot Noir has all the complexity and character of an old world wine, but is followed by a cleanliness and brightness with a fresh fruit character suited to new world palates.
This youthful and savoury wine has great character and is supple in nature. Leading off with fresh notes of ripe white cherry, a hint of raspberry and cassis, complex red fruits remain on the palate and give way to a pleasant minerality and touch of earthiness. Smooth tannins coupled with a hint of mature red fruit, nettle and baking spice on the finish make this a beautifully structured, food-friendly wine.
The tannin in this wine reaches for a distinctive food pairing. Consider a duck or a pork roast to allow this Pinot Noir to play up its complexities while balancing its acidity. A creamy mushroom risotto would also be a great pairing to showcase this Pinot Noir’s structure and flavour profile. When looking for cheese pairings, choose cheeses with creaminess like an aged Camembert, or delicate flavours such as Comte.
