Kelvedon Estate 2017 Pinot Noir
Winery : Kelvedon Estate
Deep but clear hues in this new vintage of a classic favourite. Gorgeously aromatic with dark cherry, hint of charcuterie and spice. The dark fruits follow through on the palate; the effect is quite jubey and juice, but there's a savoury element too which keeps things very clean. Touch of vanilla from the oak, smooth and pliant tannins, lingering.
