occurred for 16 to 29 days. The winemaking team treat ferments gently to avoid over-extraction to
produce a soft gentle Pinot Noir. Yeasts that can handle high fermentation temperatures are chosen,
this helps to stabilise colour as much as possible & to heighten flavours in the wine. The aim is to
extract as much colour as possible but not extract too much tannin, a balancing act our winemakers
have mastered. The wine was aged on good quality clean lees in French oak for six months to help
build natural sweetness and texture.

Unremarkable Pinot noir
I was sent this to review by Ocado. We shared this with friends pre dinner and it received mixed comments. As expected in a Pinot noir it is light in body with hints of summer fruit. I thought it was unremarkable and have had better pinots at this price point.
A bit watery
I was sent this by Ocado to review. I found this wine to be a bit pallid. It is pinot noir so as expected it is quite light bodied and acidic, but it didn't have the silky texture I was expecting. I would choose something else next time.
Musty vinegar aroma
I’m reviewing this product because I got a free sample from Ocado. The smell coming off this wine in the glass wasn't really encouraging. The taste wasn't any better either and matched the initial impressions based on aroma. I did try a second small sip to be able to describe the taste but I still couldn't get past musty vinegar. Agree with others who have described it as thin with slight fizz. Not a wine that will be on my favourites list. Really disappointed as my favourite wine is New Zealand Lindauer pinot noir blend sparkling wine.
I was sent this product to review. Agree totally with the previous reviewer- thin and a slight fizz to it. No nose to it. No real body or flavour. Very average. Far too expensive for what it is, you can get far better for £5-£6 a bottle.
Too thin and \x22fizzy\x22
I was given this to review for Ocado. I was really looking forward to trying this Pinot Noir - however, it was very thin and had a bit of fizz to it. We felt it was almost slightly vinegary. Very expensive for something so bad.
This is a good wine with a nice fruity smell to it and a pleasant taste of blackberries and cherries, leaving a nice aftertaste. Better decanted for an hour or so to bring out the full flavours but it is rather expensive for what it is.
