Staete Landt 2010 Pinot Noir has a deep cherry colour and an attractive lifted and complex aroma. Wild violets, dark cherries, dried herbs and earthy notes burst out of the glass. The palate is intense with blackcurrants and allspice being balanced by gentle tannins and clean acidity. Given time in the glass it develops more savoury notes and a soft texture showing the layers to the wine. It is drinking very well now but will continue to develop over the next 10 years.
