100% Pinot Noir. The 2017 vintage radiates its typical warmth and freshness with red and blue fruits layered over earthy aromatics. Sleek yet firm tannins frame the silken palate.
“Corofin is an artisan family wine company. Our sole ambition is to transmit the voice of the land and the season through crafting small single block wines from pinot noir and chardonnay grapes. The hope with all Corofin wines is to transmit a sense of place and season first, over fruit intensity or winemaking ambition.”
