Wild Earth Pinot Noir 2014

Deep purple with purple hues. Perfumed on the nose with dark cherry and plum aromas together with violets and savoury leather, mushroom and smoky char. Concentrated, sweet plum and black cherry flavours on the palate together with spice, leather and hints of oak char. A complex, medium bodied wine which has ample fine grained tannins together with a touch of minerality on the long finish.

"Smokey, complex nose, deep and fruitful, high-toned palate, offering black fruits. Structure palate gives texture of fine tannins".
