Medium intense red fruits, mainly redcurrants and raspberries, with supporting vanilla oak. Silky sweet fruits on the palate that creates a velvet soft palate. Delightful light bodied wine given the pinot treatment. Made from 130 year old vines, the wine spends 100 days on skins which give the wine such a lovely mouthfeel. Tremendous wine.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
