We visited Foxtrot in 2013 and purchased this bottle plus another Pinot Noir made with grapes from the Foxtrot Vineyard. It wasn’t easy keeping this one until Christmas 2015, but we managed.
A perfect accompaniment to turkey dinner with sausage stuffing made with fresh rosemary, thyme and cranberry, this wine is a translucent garnet with aromas of cherry and high notes of cranberry, dark green moss, pronounced nutmeg, clove and some cedar plank.
The palate is dry with medium plus acidity and muted tannins showing the right amount of soft grip. Flavours of black cherry and pomegranate intersperse with deep five-spice powder and fresh cedar frond.
A long finish complements this balanced and elegant Pinot.
WSET Very Good plus.
