Michele's tasting notes: Depth of colour with lovely clarity. Satsuma plum and intense blackcurrant on the nose along with sweet paprika, meaty/umami notes and hint of dark chocolate. All very complex and mysterious. The palate has the classic Home Hill jubey and slurpy aspects with that silky glycerol note. There's a complementary minerally/herbal edge with the glorious dark fruits bringing the whole package together. So very Home Hill, so very flavoursome... It is definitely a 'sit up and take notice' kinda Pinot.
