A lacy, almost ethereal pinot noir, this is etched with a lively red fruited tang. Wild strawberries, red cherry and rhubarb spring to mind. The tannins are chalky and firm, yet serve to set the palate up for another sip rather than warning one that the wine is unapproachable. There is a tad of whole cluster nether nether, too. Indeed, as well as this will develop, it is delicious now. A vanilla oak slice of oak merely accentuates the fruit, guiding it along its way.
A pretty, elegant young pinot whose fresh perfume of sweet cherries, raspberries, baked earth and fresh cedar/vanilla oak reveals suggestions of cinnamon, clove and citrus oil. Fine and gentle, it’s supple and restrained, with a faintly tomatoey palate whose notes of cherries, raspberries and faintly smoky, meaty oak are backed by fine, powdery tannins, nuances of cola and dried herbs. Likely to flesh out in time.
