Tasting Notes

“Preservation of fruit to retain the pure and delicate character of Pinot Noir was a focus for me with the 2019 harvest. Complex yet delicate fruit provides a full spectrum of cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry flavours with bright acidity and silky tannins. Light floral notes are complemented by a touch of oak, perfecting the wine with a pleasant earthy almond character.” Johnnie Calitz (winemaker)

Food Pairing

The palate has fine-grained tannins, making this wine a perfect partner for duck, sea bass and pork belly.
