The grapes used to craft Golden Goose Pinot Noir were handpicked, cold soaked, and fermented in traditional oak cuvées. The juice obtained was then pressed and aged in new French oak barriques. This process led to the creation of a deep crimson hued wine displaying vibrant red tinges. This elegant Pinot Noir flaunts a lush bouquet and juicy palate full of plums, red currants, spice, cedar and dried herbs. Fine tannins combine with intense red and dark fruits as well as savoury nuances, to provide a silky texture. The finish is harmonious. Drink this dazzling Pinot Noir with a rack of lamb, or gamey meats like venison, to appreciate its grand fruit flavours.
