Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2013

Ripe hand picked fruit, gentle winemaking and maturation in French oak have resulted in a complex and powerful wine, with aromas of ripe cherries, plums and a hint of spicy complexity. On the palate, this wine has supple, soft and textural tannins with good weight and persistence. Excellent value, drinking fantastically well now and will develop and cellar for several years.

It is an old, local landmark and, whilst getting the land ready for vines, the owners realized that there was no way they could chop this tree down. It was part of the land…and now the vines…and had… more…
