2015 Palliser Estate Pinot Noir

Palliser Estate

Medium-bodied and elegantly concentrated, the palate

possesses layers of soft red berry fruit flavours melded with fragrant

dark herbs, red florals, spices and liquorice. The fruit has a delicate

richness and sweetness that is balanced by very fine-grained,

flowery, but supple tannins and ripe acidity. The flavours blossom

in floral lift and show spice detail as the wine carries to a gently

lingering, nuanced finish. This is a very refined, subtly layered and

supple, fine-grained Pinot Noir with delicate red fruits, florals

herbs and spices.

    The nose is very soft and gently voluminous, unfolding subtle layers of dark-red berry fruits melded with dark herbs, nuances of spice and liquorice, unfolding an ethereal array of red florals. This is a little shy, but has beauty and finesse.
