Wooing Tree Pinot Noir 2013

Ripe hand picked fruit, gentle winemaking and maturation in French oak have resulted in a complex and powerful wine, with aromas of ripe cherries, plums and a hint of spicy complexity. On the palate, this wine has supple, soft and textural tannins with good weight and persistence. Excellent value, drinking fantastically well now and will develop and cellar for several years.
