Villion Pinot Noir 2021

Tasting Notes

Gentle yet intriguing entry with a focused red berry fruit core. Ripe raspberry and freshly pressed pomegranate aromas dominate. Enticing, bruised rooibos tealeaf nuances, sliced ginger and a touch of polished leather expand this elegant Pinot Noir. Lovely saline and wet stone notes reflect the wine’s spontaneous fermentation nature and maritime origin.

Broad, mouth filling entry with a fresh, red berry fruit acidity. Vibrant texture and daring, structured edge, evolving into a pleasurable, prolonged finish.

Delightful already but will amply reward with a richer experience within the next 3 – 8 years.
