Mid-red with garnet hue, the nose shows ripe red cherry and dried herb aromas. The palate starts with sweet berry fruit, but some drying tannins give a more savoury finish. A good food wine to partner duck or quail. This Pinot Noir is in a different style to our usual Grey Sands label, due to different weather conditions during this vintage. It is made from the same grapes as all our vintages, so the differences are purely down to the season
Blend of Merlot (60%), Malbec (30%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). Deep red with purple hue, this wine has some complexity already on the nose, ripe red and black berries with savoury notes of pencil shavings, black pepper and toasted oak. A mid weight palate, good fruit, moderate tannins with plenty of length, makes this fine drinking at present but with more rewards ahead for those with cellars.
