An Italian word meaning realism and truth, Verismo also describes the ‘golden age’ of opera in the late 1800s. Verismo operas are based on simple stories but ones characterized by great passion and heightened emotions.

“Medium-dark red, this Pinot Noir has a bouquet of Turkish delight, chocolate and plum with a palate of tight dense concentrated sweet red fruits and fine tannins. Whilst attractive in its youth this wine will evolve gracefully for many years.” Olly Masters (Winemaker)

Vintage Notes

After a mild dry winter, early spring was cool and wet with light spring winds. By December conditions became dry and hot providing an ideal start to the summer. Over February/March conditions were stable but temperatures were slightly cooler than normal. The season finished perfectly with a fine ‘Indian summer’ with warm days and cool nights – ideal for the final period of ripening. The season conditions were conducive to the development of intense varietal flavours, good structure and ideal acidity levels. Our fruit was hand-picked at an average of 5.1 tonnes per hectare and Growing Degree Days (GDDs) at 1021.

Food Match

Pinot Noir is the ultimate food wine as it’s perfect with most meats but especially lamb, venison and veal. Some of the classic Pinot Noir matches are with game birds such as quail, pheasant, turkey and duck. It can accompany a wide range of vegetable dishes, autumnal fruits as well as mild or creamy cheeses.
