2015 Granite Hills Pinot Noir
Wine Rating 
 
93

A blend of grapes that are sourced from Romsey and the Granite Hills Estate vineyard in Baynton. In terms of colour the wine looks like it could have been bottled yesterday with lovely clarity and a bright reflective red, the nose has strawberry and rhubarb with a touch of earth and crushed herbs, tight grain oak gives background spice.

The palate has the mineral acid structure the region is known for with fruit starting to give some faint secondary notes of undergrowth and old leather against dark cherry fruit. Tannins are tight and compact whilst giving length and dimension to gently spiced fruits. The wine is drinking very well now, but set to reward a number of years yet in bottle.
