Drumsara Pinot Noir 2013
The 2013 Pinot Noir is the perfect example of Drumsara Wines’ Terroir, expressing dark and wild fruits of the forest; cherry, plum and strawberry, with an underlying hint of spices. The palate abounds in deep fruits, supplemented by vanilla beans and cocoa. The fine-grained tannins and lively acidity give the wine great length and ageing potential. Enjoy now thru 2020 and serve at 16-18 deg C.
The Autumn was dry and warm allowing the ripening fruit to develop good varietal flavors. The fruit at harvest was impeccably clean with good maturity.
