Domain Road 'Defiance' Pinot Noir 2017
The 2017 vintage is very dark purple with purple hues. The wine has fragrant notes of violet, potpourri, red cherry, raspberry and black pepper on the nose. the palate is black and broody with ripe fruits, earthy notes, tobacco, violets and spice. A complex wine with nice acidity and ample fine grain tannins, with a long persistent finish.
" The core of red berry fruit flavours underpin layers of texture from firm youthful tannins and acidity, new oak and flavour synergies that can only come from excellent fruit and proper winemaking. Complex lengthy finish. Drink from 2010 through 2030+"
