Always the pretty one of the single vineyard pinots, this wine is bright ruby red, with a crunchy red cherry nose. Complexing notes of marzipan and lifted perfume of Moroccan pink rosebuds. On the palate the wine is fresh and spicy – hints of schezuan pepper, tangy red cherry and ferrous minerality are wrapped up in a silky texture and long finish.
