There's a whole lot of flavour packed into this bottle. Though light in tannin and body, this Yarra Valley Pinot is brimming with juicy notes of strawberry, raspberry and cherry, with wild herbs and a fragrant, floral perfume. Perfect when lightly chilled and enjoyed on a particularly sunny afternoon, though equally versatile with food. Undoubtedly the kind of red that can prove how fish doesn't always have to be paired with white wine!
