The 2010 Estate Pinot Noir is a deep carmine colour with a purple hue. The style has lifted notes of ripe red fruit with game and spice. On the palate has a vibrant bouquet of cherries and strawberries and leads to a soft, rounded, fruit driven palate. Spicy and earthy notes accompany silky tannins to culminate in a well balanced and very approachable Pinot Noir.
