Stanley Estates Pinot Noir `Block 8’ 2015
Tasting Notes: Pinot Noir ‘Block 8’ 2015
Our pinot noir 2014 is a fabulous medium bodied fruit driven Red wine. This wine combines appealing fruit richness with a savoury undertone, displaying aromas of red-Black plums, raspberries and boysenberries. SoA on the nose, the effect of the oak maturaCon is subtle developing silky tannins. It is nicely weighted and textured on the palate with lovely generosity, the finish lingering, spicy and delicately dry.
