New World style Pinot that is just beautiful & worth the premium price

Description: Light ruby to garnet in colour with an intense nose. This wine features an beautiful aromatic nose followed by an equally delicious palate. Notes include purple lilacs, paradise plum, sage, strawberry, raspberry, peat moss, forest greens, and Sea-grape. Medium body with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: None

Thanks to Mario from The Tasting Room for suggesting this wine to my daughter; Sarah, for my birthday present.

Interesting Note:

  • Lightly chill and serve in a balloon style Pinot glass
  • Hand picked & hand made
  • Neither fined nor filtered

Drink now or in the next 7 years on its own or pair it with Spiced Roasted Crispy Goose.
