Composition 100% Pinot Noir Analysis Alc 12.5% | T.A. 5.9g/lt | pH 3.3 | Residual Sugar 2.6g/lt Harvest Date 16 February 2009 Bottling Date 25 November 2010 Maturation Drink now or over the next 5 years Aroma Initially the nose presents with citrus peel and as it opens up spicy notes, cherries and blackcurrant come to the fore. The typical earthiness of a good burgundy adds interest. Flavour This is a juicy, medium-bodied wine with an elegant combination of sour cherries and tasty oak maturation flavours. The wine is accessible now with a fresh finish and good balance between tannins and acidity. Serving Suggestion The wine is a good match to lighter red meat dishes like pork fillet with fruity accompaniments, veal or rich white meats like crispy duck. For fish lovers, grilled game fish or traditional Spanish-style paella would be perfect.
