Spring Vale Pinot Noir 2021
Deep ruby red in colour, this Pinot Noir has powerful aromas of dark cherry and spice with subtle hints of dried herbs. The palate has the trademark Spring Vale intensity of dark berry fruit flavours, plush mouthfeel and forest floor undertones. Finishes with persistent velvety tannins. Will reward careful cellaring of 5-10 years, but if you don’t have the patience enjoy with spicy barbequed leg of lamb.
