Even, pale ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim. This has an elegant and restrained nose with slender, subtle and ethereal aromas of red cherry fruit and red florals entwined with some minerally reduction, unfolding dark herbal elements from the core. Medium-bodied, the palate has an elegantly concentrated heart with flavours of red cherry fruit and lifted red florals, along with subtle herb and mineral nuances. The fruit is supported by fine-grained flowery tannin extraction with integrated acid freshness providing good energy and linearity. The wine has a refined, taut core that carries to a long and sustained finish of cherries and herbs. This is an elegantly concentrated, slender Pinot Noir with red cherry and floral fruit and subtle herb and mineral nuance on a fine, sleek palate. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. Clones 667, 777, 115 and 114, from a single vineyard in Alexandra, destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 5% new French oak barriques.
