Villion Pinot Noir 2016
Light Ruby luminosity with a youthful purple hue.
Generous flavour of red sour cherry on the entry, supported by roasted herbs and red-fruit spiciness. Young strawberry in flavour with a hint of fresh mint.
Mouth-filling smooth with a lingering prominence of delightful freshness. Delicate, but firm in stature. Slight salty finish reveals the wines spontaneous fermented nature.
