Wine Region: Australia - Victoria Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: Exhibiting and intense and deeply complex aroma. The wine opens with musk before giving way to seductive red fruit with hints of frankincense, rye bread, minerals, and subtle notes of sweet cedar and savoury spice. The palate is driven by red fruit with hints of dark chocolate, savoury characters, and bergamot. Tannins are fine and meld seamlessly with a bright delicate acidity.
