David Nieuwoudt Ghost Corner Pinot Noir 2014

A beautifully crafted Pinot noir with prominent red fruit of ripe cherries and sweet raspberries with an undertone of earthy, mushroom nuances. A silky palate with berries and delicate oak components following through

To be enjoyed on its own, but well paired with a creamy mushroom soup or crispy duck and chicken dishes.
