This is a bigger style of Pinot Noir than we have made in the past. Great care was taken to keep the delicate aromas and flavours of the wine, which are challenging to extract from this 'heartbreak grape'. This is the first time we have this wine under screwcap, to guarantee that you drink the wine with the flavours which we wish to reflect.
