Winner of a Double Gold award at the Gilbert & Gaillard competition in 2022.
This South African Pinot Noir is a beautiful ruby colour with delicate aromas of pomegranate, rhubarb and hints of spices. On the palate there are falvours of wild strawberry with a round lingering finish of cherry. This an elegant wine, well balanced with subtle French Oak and red fruits.
A certain amount of sorting and selection took place in the vineyards leaving sun-burnt berries on the vines. Once de-stemmed, the berries underwent a second sorting, which further removed exc ess stems, raisin berries and leaves, before proceeding to whole-berry fermentation in a wooden vat. A soft tannin structure was achieved through regular pump -overs and punch-downs. The total maturation of the skins was 15 days and once malo-lactic fermentation was completed the wine further matured in 225 L French oak barrels for 14 consecutive months.
