Chamonix Reserve Pinot Noir 2016
The Chamonix Pinot Noir Reserve shows a ruby red colour, with notes of cherry, wild red berries, crushed black pepper, cinnamon and violets on the nose. Although firm in structure and intense in flavour, textures are mellow and round, expanding with time to extraordinary opulence and length on the palate.
It should reach its prime in about 5-8 years after release.
Pinot Noir 100%
