Tawse Cherry Avenue Pinot Noir (750ml)
Tawse is a family-owned estate winery situated on the lower slopes of the Niagara Escarpment. At Tawse we unite traditional winemaking techniques with state-of-the-art technology to create wines of exceptional elegance, depth and character. The fruit is harvested from old-growth, low-yielding vines and gently handled using natural gravity flow and geothermal energy. Tawse is an organic and biodynamic wine producer.
The Cherry Avenue estate vineyard was planted in 2005 and the grapes are producing wines of increasing depth and complexity. This is evident on the expressive nose of the 2012 Cherry Pinot Noir; ripe notes of black cherry, violet and a hint of graphite. On the palate, the fruit continues with lively notes of cranberry, pomegranate, and a touch of spice from 14 months in French oak. Pinot Noir is known for being an very food friendly wine and this one is particularly suited to richer dished because of its ripe fruity character and structure.
