Astrolabe Durvillea Pinot Noir 2016

The Durvillea Pinot Noir by Astrolabe is made from 100% Pinot Grapes harvested at precisely the right moment to preserve the purity and intensity of flavour achieved by Simon Waghorn in his winemaking.

Bright garnet in colour this Pinot Noir displays wonderful aromas of black and red cherries, forest fruits, strawberry conserve and spice. The palate is medium bodied with cherry and plum flavours, a silky texture and long dry finish.

The Durvillea Pinot Noir offers short to mid-term cellar potential.
