JH Meyer Palmiet Pinot Noir Elgin 2017
- Low stock - 8 items left
PRODUCER: Johan Meyer is one of South Africa’s most promising talents. His JH Signature Wines are made from selected grapes in the cooler regions of Elgin, Outeniqua and Elandskloof, where he is making terroir-focused Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in small batches. “I fell in love with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay while working in New Zealand and Santa Barbara. There’s great potential for both grapes in South Africa, and, as they are less widely planted, you have a chance to put your own stamp on the wines if you do a good job,” he says. He recently started bottling three single vineyard Pinot Noirs which he vinifies in the exact same way, so as to showcase the distinct expression of each site.
TASTING NOTES: Cherry, sweet spice and soft herbs on the nose. A finely grained, plush palate shows cranberry, pomegranate and red cherry tempered by precise acid.
