Castelli Estate Pinot Noir
The extra hang time from the higher altitudes allows for a lovely flavour/tannin ripeness balance. With the use of five different clones, this wine shows the complexity and intensity that can be found in Denmark Pinot Noir. A sweet black cherry and plum bouquet is at the core, with complexing earthy, shitake mushroom, dried herbs and rose petals overtones. The intense fruit flavour carries onto the palate and is coaxed along with stalky, savoury tannins and flinty French oak hints. Typical of Denmark Pinot, this wine is quite muscular in style and is well suited to careful cellaring over the ensuing 7-10 years. This wine has been minimally filtered and a small residue might remain as it finds its natural balance.
