This wine continues the growing tradition of fine Pinot Noir from Lone Star. A dark red colour with a crimson hue. Fragrant aromas of dark red berries, light spice and oak. On the palate the wine is beautifully balanced with ripe fruit, sound acid and abundant tannins providing a textural mouthfeel and plenty of length.
Excellent drinking now and will improve further through to 2027.
