SEA SMOKE Pinot Noir 'Ten' 2014

The Sea Smoke ‘Ten’ is comprised from Ten different Pinot Noir clones (777, 667, 2a, 115, 113, 828, 05, 459, 09 and 16) sourced from the Sea Smoke Estate Vineyard. The 2014 is an outstanding showing, as it bursts with attractive aromas of cherries, strawberries and pomegranate coming together with exotic spices, cola, floral and a touch of black tea all taking shape. On the palate this is beautifully balanced with a gorgeous round, silky texture supported by just enough acidity to keep it fresh and inviting. Everything all comes together on the finish where juicy red fruits and spices continue to linger effortlessly. This is an impressive showing from the team at Sea Smoke, who have done a fantastic job maintaining the freshness, while achieving optimum ripeness levels, without letting the wine become out of balance – a character that readers who enjoy a more traditional style of Pinot Noir will find welcoming.
