- In stock, ready to ship
The Cape South Coast, a region known for producing world class cool climate wines, is rapidly becoming synonymous with outstanding South African Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. With its close proximity to the ocean, it enjoys cool daytime temperatures that are even lower overnight, particularly during the growing season resulting into this medium bodied wine with classic elegance that exhibits both grace and power. Enjoy now or watch it turn more voluptuous as it ages. Our style of Pinot Noir is aiming at red fruit, soft and elegant style of Pinot Noir. A style that best enjoyed within 5 years of vintage.
WINEMAKING: Exceptional quality and record low yields characterised 2020. Lower yields made for an earlier than usual start to picking. Berries being smaller and bunches lighter made for good flavor intensity, high natural acidity and structure in the wine. Overall the vintage was wet one with average maximum of 25 Centigrade during the ripening season being equal to the long-term average (versus an equivalent long-term average for Burgundy of 24.5 Centigrade). November to January again were drier, making for relatively easy and successful disease control.
TASTING NOTES: This opulent style of Pinot Noir shows prominent aromas of wild cherries and strawberry with baking spice undertones. It has a finely textured palate with silky tannin, cranberry and boiled sweets makes way for notes of truffle and dark chocolate followed by a fresh and vibrant finish.
Enjoy now or cellar for up to five years from vintage.
