Pinot Noir Queen Maria
As a variety, Pinot Noir is a very difficult one to cultivate and transform into wine. Nevertheless, when that perfect spot is hit, this wine showcases its quality beautifully. The 2016 vintage is a great example of that, as such our Pinot Noir showcases a unique varietal character that distinguishes itself from the rest.
The interplay of cassis, red berry, and cherry are quite complementary yet also a bit dynamic; shifting to strawberry, violets and a touch of earth.
Being lighter in style, Pinot Noir is a beautiful, food-friendly wine. It typically exhibits a fruit-forward character, with strawberry, cherry, raspberry, and blackberry fruit dominating the palate.
The finish comes gracefully amidst dusty tannins, with warm spice notes that also make their way into the profile, often in the form of cinnamon, clove, and smoky tobacco nuances.
The Pinot Noir goes well with mixed salads, white meat, fish, cheeses, and seafood.
