2018 Ad Hoc 'Cruel Mistress' Pinot Noir
The nose shows graphite and minerals, juicy black cherries. A hint of spicy oak plays a supporting role. The palate is softly textured, fresh and vibrant, the flavours of black cherry and earthy beetroot carried along by a fine long acid finish.
Roasted game with a rich wine gravy.
