Further Details

Pure, exuberant Pinot that sees brief ageing in forty per cent new French oak barrels. Its initial aromas are reminiscent of raspberry and cloves, followed by a mid-weight palate of racy acidity with juicy pomegranate freshness, rich, silky flavours, black cola aromas and a hint of spice on the nose.

There's attractive, lingering structure and full flavours of cherry and plum all the way through to the pleasing finish of this food-friendly wine, which has body enough to be able to stand up to a variety of rich foods.

The Cycles Gladiator range enjoyed an enormous boost to publicity when its wines were banned in the US state of Alabama. The image of a naked cyclist on the label, inspired by a French advertisement from the early years of the twentieth century, was considered an affront to public decency. The winery, unsurprisingly, made what it could of the unforeseen exposure.
