Pinot Noir 2012

$28.00 inc GST

An engaging wine with aromas of cherry. Raspberries and prunes fill the nose and overflow to the palate. The palate is medium bodied with a smooth textural finish and a hint of violet.

Description

The cool maritime climate of Mt. Compass on the Fleurieu Peninsula and the glacial sands over limestone provide an ideal terroir for Pinot Noir.

Carefully tended and handpicked, this Pinot Noir will go well with highly flavoured Mediterranean dishes such as pizza and pasta but also matches grilled meaty fish such as salmon & tuna and is perfect with roast duck.
