Meerlust Pinot Noir 2019

Meerlust Pinot Noir 2019

The wine shows a vibrant garnet colour with a youthful appearance. On the nose the wine shows pronounced lifted floral perfume with a brooding and seductive red berry fruit, earthy, wild mushrooms and hints of spice.

On the palate there are very pure Pinot fruit flavours on entry with red cherry and musk flavours coupled with fresh acidity. The wine has layered complexity with great elegance and finesse. Very fine lacy, almost powdery tannin on the finish.

White and red meats, duck, Parma ham, grilled line fish, tuna, wild mushrooms and traditional cheeses.
