This wine is made from pinot noir grapes on selected rows of our Terrace Vineyard. The fruit was destemmed, crushed and cold soaked on skins for 24 hours prior to a gentle press. A cool fermentation was maintained to capture the aromatics and vibrant varietal fruit characters.
The wine is enticingly aromatic, with vibrant red berry fruits, red cherries and rose florals. A dry wine with a touch of fruit sweetness, it is crisp and refreshing with bright acidity and a long elegant floral finish.
Delicious as an aperitif, or serve with antipasto, salmon or cranberry glazed ham.
