|About the product|
|Product||Pegasus Bay Prima Donna Pinot Noir|
|Grape variety||Pinot Noir 100%|
|Tasting notes||It has a deep ruby hue. The aromas and flavours evoke impressions of black cherries, purple plums, wild blackberries and mulberries. These are underpinned with a savoury dimension suggestive of roast game, grilled mushrooms and black olive tapenade. There is a layer of velvety tannins that coat and refine its big body and taut muscular structure, helping to draw out its lingering aftertaste of chocolate mocha and spice. While ready to drink on release it can be expected to cellar well and evolve gracefully for many years.|
