The Balverne Pinot Noir shows notes of bright cherry and strawberry fruits on the nose along with baking spice, damp earth, and faint cherry cola. The palate mirrors the nose, showing ripe cherries and strawberries and with air, a bit of pomegranate syrup and a slight herbal note.
This wine will pair especially well with salmon dishes and roast pork.
The lots of this Pinot Noir were fermented in open top fermenters using non-saccharomyces yeast as a sulfite alternative during a 5 day cold-soak. Aged in 100% French, medium and light toasted oak barrels with 25% new barrels for 9 months.
