Michele's notes: Beautiful ruby/garnet hues. Red cherry notes mingle with cinnamon spice, beetroot and umami elements. Surprisingly bold in the mouth, given the medium density hues, and incredibly persistent. Briary and foresty notes mingle with the delicious fruit. Lithe, tasty and quite divine.
Spring Vale 2020 Estate Pinot Noir: Michele's notes: Rich crimson. Complex aromas of plum, meaty/ferrous/stone elements with pizza thyme, tobacco leaf and violet. Lithe, supple and flowing in the mouth. Exceptionally tasty fruit, with a nice note of glycerol which keeps the flavours lingering. Terrific balance overall of fruit and savoury elements.
