Made predominantly from pinot noir, with a little bit of Chardy thrown in for good measure, It's quite perfumed with some appealing strawberries and rose florals on the nose, together with peach skins and earthiness. The palate is surprisingly dense, but it has grace, with a smidgen of sweetness, some soft spice and almost roasted coffee notes, coupled with those red fruits, crisp citrus acidity, and a mellow, fruity finish. It would be great drinking by itself with friends, or even with some fruit-based desserts.
The blend of mostly Pinot Noir with some Chardonnay gives the wine its lovely pale pink colour and delicate hints of red fruit - strawberry, raspberry and even wild strawberry.
This is a refined, somewhat smoky wine, the stuff that dreams are made of - for an afternoon or a dessert time, with perhaps a raspberry charlotte or a red fruit coulis.
