Wine Notes
Color
Intense salmon pink, which varies according to vintage, due to different ripeness levels of phenolic compounds in Pinot Noir.
Aroma
Elegant notes of wild berry-fruit and ripe fruits, well melded with subtle nuances of yeast and crusty bread. Heady, warm quality from the brief maceration of Pinot Noir on the skins during vinification.
Taste
Refined and elegant, exhibiting exceptional acidity and body. Acidity is well balanced by the medium dosage.
