Villion Pinot Noir 2013

Light Ruby luminosity with a youthful purple hue.

Tasting Notes

An abundance of sour cherry on the entryis enhanced by a red-fruit spiciness drawing the senses in for more. Young strawberry flavours and caramel nuances join the cherry and spiciness on the palate.

The fresh, youthful acidity and slight tannin grip promise a rewarding future but for the impatient palate, the neutral oak has added creaminess and fruit purity well before the due date.
