Stockman's Ridge Rider Pinot Noir 2014

This pinot noir is from Stockman's Ridge and the "Central Ranges" geographic indication.  Lightly coloured, it unexpectedly resembles a négociant Bourgogne rouge.  It has aromatics of raspberry and strawberry.  The palate is a straightforward but not unpleasant affair, with licks of raspberry, acidity and length.
