The red and dark fruit flavours noted on the nose does translate to the palate, accompanied by a touch of cranberry and a hint of forest floor or earthiness. The wine's acidity would provide freshness, and the fine tannins does contribute to a pleasing structure.
Balance: The use of French oak for a brief period would aim to achieve a delicate balance between the oak's influences and the grape's natural characteristics, preserving the wine's varietal identity.
Finish: The finish is elegant and lingering, with the wine's fruitiness and subtle oak notes leaving a graceful impression on the palate.
Food Pairing: Pinot Noir's versatility makes it an excellent choice for pairing with a variety of dishes. Its lighter body and balanced acidity does complement dishes such as roasted poultry, grilled salmon, mushroom-based dishes, and charcuterie boards.
Ageability: This Pinot Noir does have the potential to age gracefully for a few years, allowing its flavours to evolve and integrate further.
