Kina Beach Vineyard

Kina Beach Vineyard Reserve Pinot Noir 2011

Tasting Notes

The nose is a medley of dark stone fruit dominated by uplifted bright red cherries and dried raisin. The wine is richly layered but presents in a lightly structured manner that balances playfulness with seriousness. This is a Pinot-lovers-wine with high extraction yielding fruit concentration and flavour of pressed plums, cherries and raisins. Cedar wood character is delivered softly over finely grained dry tannins. The resulting wine blends oak and fruit nicely with hints of Christmas spice towards the finish. The balance of tannin with residual fruit sweetness creates a beautiful wine well suited for every occasion.
