Melville 2017 Estate Pinot Noir
Pale garnet in color, vibrant and complex fruit aromatics of ripe pomegranate, rhubarb, tangerine zest and bright cherry spring from the glass. In the background, spicy notes of black tea dust and cinnamon weave along the palate with earthy hints of chanterelle mushrooms and wet sand. Mouthwatering and fresh on the palate, the wine displays gorgeous concentration and purity that leads to a balanced, lengthy finish.
