100% Pinot Noir. Pale, blush pink in colour. Aromatic notes of fresh raspberries and rose petals overlaid with aromas of fresh baked brioche, rose water and a hint of truffles. The refined, elegant structure is in perfect balance with the subtle creamy texture and richness of the mid-palate. Luscious Turkish delight and berry compote, complexed with notes of roasted almond nougat, brioche and shaved truffles. Fine tannins derived from fermentation and maturation in aged oak barrels complement the fine, creamy texture on the mid-palate and natural acidity which extends to a lingering, refreshing finish. Above average rainfall in winter with a cool, wet spring and below average temperatures through November resulted in late flowering and reduced yields. December saw a return to warmer day temperatures with very cool nights, remaining warm and dry until late autumn. Perfect weather to allow long, even ripening while retaining beautiful natural acidity in the grapes. An outstanding quality vintage. The grapes were handled gently during harvest and in the winery. Fermentation in aged French oak barrels for seven months is followed by tirage and secondary fermentation in bottle. The wine was disgorged after two and half years of ageing on lees to develop complexity and sophistication. ABV 12%
