It has attractive aromas of peaches, raspberry and rhubarb crumble on the nose. Intense flavours of peaches and hints of oranges and toffee apples show on the palate, with a great body and lingering finish.
This wine is a perfect match with desserts or cheeses and can be enjoyed on its own.
100% Pinot Noir grapes were late harvested on 28th April 2011 allowing them time to ripen fully and produce a considerable amount of sugar. The juice was fermented in stainless steel to retain the varietal and fruit characteristics. The ferment was then stopped to retain a residual sugar of 100g/l.
