2020 The Raptor Pinot Noir 2020

The aroma is like a bike ride down a small laneway, lined with shops that burst with indulgent smells. In a single breath, you take it all in. The fruit seller with dark berries out front, the chocolatier, the aroma from the little cafe and at the lane end, the florist’s wildflowers and violets. Now, cycle around again. It’s time to taste. Rest your bike against the wall. From the fruit shop, pinch some ripe raspberries. Don’t worry, they didn’t see you. Stay a moment at the café, while the good looking barista serves you a slice of dark plum tart with a coffee. Delicious. As you stroll back to your bike, through an open door, you see someone carving a delicate wooden chair. You can taste the savoury French oak in the air. Not your everyday bike ride
