The Feral Fox Pinot Noir 2019, D’Arenberg
Bright, pure and shamelessly slurpable. The 2015 Feral Fox is an aromatic and expressive Pinot, brimming with red fruits and a raft of savoury characters. The fruity and savoury highlights mingle to deliver an ever evolving bouquet. The palate is particularly lively with rhubarb and raspberry flavours combined with an almost pomegranate like crunch. Searching a little deeper reveals mushroom, forest floor and cedary notes that make Pinot such an alluring prospect. Chalky tannins and punchy acid ensure the finish is refreshing, not fatiguing. A versatile wine that can be enjoyed in any number of situations, young and slightly chilled, as an aperitif on a summers afternoon, or paired to a rich, gamey meal of duck and winter veg, perhaps with a touch of age.
