Vriesenhof Pinot Noir 2003

Vriesenhof Pinot Noir 2003

The 2003 Pinot Noir is a very elegant wine. It has a typical Pinot Noir nose, focusing on berry fruit like juniper berries and raspberries.The texture is elegant with a refined acidity and a soft support of the oak ageing. The wine has a very good structure with a slight farmyard character on the palate. The tannins are supple and would make an excellent companion for grilled duck breast.

Enjoy with light meals, salmon, duck, chicken, ham or veal. Recommended with pastas and risotto.
