Tasting notes

10/02/2013

Ripe, smoky cherry and raspberry nose. Medium-bodied but fresh and limpid; has great purity of fruit, lean and exquisite thanks to fine acidity; has poise and persistence. This is mouthwatering Pinot, with terrific length (Stephen Brook). Open fruit, bright and vibrant; soft, creamy, rich wine, a lovely mouthful - gently tannins, long finish (Anthony Hanson MW). Beautiful, pure, clear purple with a brilliant, fragrant, ethereal bouquet. Full and fresh yet fine-boned, predominantly raspberry fruit, many-layered and very persistent. Excellent. (Jasper Morris) Alc: 13.5%. Drink 2013-2015. 18.75 pts/20 (95 pts/100).
