If we had to describe Pinot noir Lastar in a word, that word would certainly be elegance. We don't want to give up on typical characteristics of this type so we do our best, however strange it may sound, for the Pinot noir to be truly Pinot noir. Aromas of strawberry, cherry, forest floor, fresh meat and fungus are noticeable, as well as a bright ruby color with shades of onion skins. On the palate there is a pronounced elegance and an excellent balance of tanines and acids. Like Chardonnay, Pinot noir Lastar stylistically has a lot of similarities with Burgundy. Despite all the difficulties in the vineyard, which are fully to be expected with this demanding type, we've succeeded in producing a Pinot noir which has become a marker of quality in Serbia thanks to knowledge, technology and attention to detail. Pinot noir 2015 was phenolically less ripe, so it took longer for the evolution of phenols, in barrique as well as the bottle, and the 2016 harvest bore a phenolically riper Pinot noir, a tad fuller and more extractive.
