Medium to full red colour with a good purple tint. The aromas are sweetly cherry-like, subtly fragrant and faintly sappy, with fruit driving the wine. There's a hint of typical Kiwi old-clone pinot greenness in the aromas and tannins. The aromas include attractive raspberry to strawberry notes. It has a firm but light, well-measured tannin grip that gives it the stiffness to stand up to quite hearty food flavours. It's a bit tough without food. Protein would be welcome.
