Lakeside Pinot Noir 2020
Story: This fresh and vibrant Pinot Noir is the perfect red wine for any time of day, any time of year – especially if celebrating lakeside with friends!
Vintage: The 2020 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.
Nose: The nose displays youthful and fresh aromas of strawberries, cherries and raspberries with additional floral notes.
Palate: The palate is vibrant with red cherries and strawberries, complemented by soft, powdery tannins.
Food Pairings: Always a great food wine, this is the perfect red wine for a balmy summer night barbeque!
