Nova Vita 'Firebird' Pinot Noir 2018, Adelaide Hills
Nova Vita is a small family owned winery situated in the Northern end of the Adelaide Hills. Owned by Mark and Joanne Kozned (and the Kids...and Monti the winery dog!) they are doing what their winery name means, bringing 'New Life' to the area through their certified sustainable winery and vegan friendly wines.
This seriously enjoyable rich and ripe Pinot Noir is aromatic with a textured palate and quite full bodied for Pinot. Full of savoury cherry and raspberry fruit, the aromas conjur up cranberry, rhubarb, mushroom, truffles and stalkiness. There are lashings of fruit, nice oak and good intensity with a delicate tannin structure.
Serve this wine with a confit of duck or a home made osso bucco on a bed of braised red cabbage and some creamy mash....a match that dreams are made of!
