A fruit-driven style of Pinot Noir with a lively personality, this wine expresses an abundance of red cherries on the nose, along with baking spices such as clove and cinnamon. On the palate, fruit flavors of cranberries and fresh raspberries are intermingled with freshly roasted coffee beans and soft cocoa like-tannins. Pinot Noir is incredibly versatile and will go well with roast chicken, duck confit, smoked salmon or simply with mature cheddar cheese.
This is a bouncy, fresh weeknight Pinot from one of New Zealand’s most well known names. It’s a vivid cherry in both color and aroma, with some stalky, spicy, savory notes along for the ride. The palate is light bodied with crispy acidity, tart red berry flavors and savory undertones. Drink slightly chilled in the spring or summer..
