Kara-Tara Pinot Noir 2019


This wine has the classic strawberry and cherry fruit you‘d expect from Pinot Noir with a touch of peppery spice that is particularly typical of Elgin. The weather was generally moderate during the harvest and produced grapes of moderate sugar levels and good natural acidity.
