|About the product|
|Product||Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir|
|Grape variety||Pinot Noir 100%|
|Tasting notes||The wine has a vibrant ruby appearance. On the nose there is a selection of red fruit aromas (raspberry, pomegranate and cherry), as well as pepper and clove. Underpinning this are savoury notes reminiscent of grilled game and black olive tapenade. The palate is satisfyingly concentrated with fine grained tannins, however there is a refreshing minerality which ensures the wine remains tight and focused, with a lasting finish.|
