Shaw & Smith Pinot Noir 2013

Subtle red fruit, it's a low 12.5% alcohol, by way of cherry and macerated strawberry. Residual spice and creamy vanilla from the oak on display.

Medium bodied, sour cherries - firm, yet with a balancing acidic freshness. Tannin is faint, in balance with the wine overall. Has a bold finish of flavour - but overall is easy to drink. 91
