SOUTH HILL PINOT NOIR 2017

The wine has beautiful clean berry fruits layered with earthy notes so typical of Pinot Noir grown in an environment ideally suited to its sensitivities. Delicious aromas of red cherry, raspberry. A subtle, understated wine. This wine can be enjoyed now but will gain depth and complexity over the next 2 to 3 years. This wine comes together nicely with a good balance between fruits and body.
