Temperance Hill grapes are showcased in this very fine, firm and balanced Pinot Noir. Lightly leafy, it has a core of bright raspberry fruit, with enough depth to feel substantial despite low alcohol. This is a wine with verve and personality, and can be enjoyed immediately or socked away for another half decade.
