Pinot Noir- The Legend 2016

Email
A difficult variety to grow but ideally suited to the lime-rich soil and cooler climate on the farm, this sophisticated yet light red wine offers cherry & earthy aromas that linger on the palate. A well balanced wine due to smooth tannins through careful oak maturation.
