Glen Carlou Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a bigger style of Pinot Noir than Glen Carlou have made in the past. Great care was taken to keep the delicate aromas and flavours of the wine, which are challenging to extract from this grape. This wine shows great ageing potential. A very clear ruby red, with a hint of plum skin purple. Aromas of cured cherries and blackberries, with cinnamon spice. Medium bodied with ripe strawberry flavours. The palate is rich and juicy, with fruit and very fine oak, and tannins are in perfect harmony. Easy to drink with a good balance between wood and fruit.
