Pinot noir selekcija 2014 645x762

Wine description

Transparent, ruby red colour, approaching a brick-like hue. The bouquet is of cherry liqueur, excellent cask and orange peel. It has the taste of very ripe fruit, especially cherries; a fresh and lovely tartness; pleasantly balanced taste of cask, and a moment later, of peppermint. You are left with a delightfully long aftertaste of cherries.

With food

Combine it with simple red meat dishes or venison. It is excellent with mushroom dishes or with matured mountain cheeses.

Cru Selections

Cru Selection wines have a very rich colour, an extraordinary beautiful body, which reflects the characteristic mineral note. These non-filtered wines are also extremely persistent.
