Wine tasting notes

The fruit for Envoy Pinot Noir comes from our oldest vines, in the area we call 'F Block.' Clay top soil, free draining gravel substrate, cool spring, warm dry summers and extended ripening combine with root stock, clonal selection and vine age to produce small bunches with concentrated flavours. Bright ruby colour. On the nose plum and cherry with signature cranberry and anise notes from this block. On the palate Initially light but with deceptive structural weight, the mid palate is soft and sweet with abundant fruit. Spice and chocolate round out the flavour spectrum.
