Bright and pretty all-round. Rose, Campari, cherry and redcurrant characters adorn the nose. The site where this Pinot was grown is expressed wonderfully, especially on the palate; a delicate minerally texture has ensued from the riverstone built soils. The palate is vibrant, light on its feet with wonderful balance and a distinguished tannin structure. A gem from a fantastic vintage for the Awatere Valley.
