Always one of the more approachable pinots in Forbes' range, and this is no exception, with bright strawberry and wild raspberry fruit aromas, some bracken and undergrowth here too, quite fragrant and distinctive. The palate delivers smooth, almost creamy tannin texture, plenty of strawberry and cherry flavour and a smooth, even finish.
