Söderberg Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with purple hues. This has a full and evenly expressed bouquet of ripe dark raspberry and red cherry aromas. The nose is a little restrained with subtle reductive mineral notes present, gradually unfolding dark herbal nuances with oak toast and perfumed florals. Medium-bodied, rich and lusciously concentrated flavours of dark berry and raspberry fruit form a dense core. The mouthfeel has a slipperiness and sweetness, and the palate is very smooth flowing. Fine-grained tannins are in the background and lively acidity provides tension and energy. Though tightly bound, the concentration and linearity carry through to a very long, firm and fine finish with raspberry fruit, minerals and spice elements.
