A blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, this conveys a subtle fragrance of rose, apple and a whiff of toasted hazelnut. The savory palate offers Marasca cherry and strawberry alongside a note of pastry cream backed up by crisp acidity and a lively perlage. It's a great deal at this price point.
