This Central Otago Pinot Noir is robust and rich and brimming with classic Pinot fruits. This wine will improve with age and should be decanted allowing time to open up and reveal the layers within. This Classic Pinot will change dramatically over time and reward those with patience.
With the low cropped fruit, left on the vine to gain true flavour ripeness, this Pinot Noir, is rich, complex and balanced. It is an opulent Pinot that displays all the characters for which Central Otago is famous.
