Vriesenhof Pinot Noir 2006

Vriesenhof Pinot Noir 2006

The wine shows classic Pinot Noir perfumes and flavours (earthiness with notes of mushroom and forest floor). Berry fruits on the nose and a slight farm yard character on the palate. The aftertaste has hints of smokiness and earthy minerality rounded of with red berries and stewed fruit.

The wine can be enjoyed with meat dishes like lamb or venison or fish like tuna or Norwegian salmon. The best temperature to serve the wine is between 12° and 14°C.
