Millton La Cote Pinot Noir 2012

Product code: 15MIL5B2012

A bright fruited, expressive nose with notes of dark cherry, juniper berry and fine burnished leather, yet with a subtle hint of roses. Savoury touches add complexity to the svelte palate and the taste is firm and alert with a lively mineral edge to balance. To soften the mouth feel this wine has been fined with Millton's own free-range egg whites, the yokes going in to the kitchen for other culinary use.
