About this Wine

VINTAGE
The warmer days combined with cooler nights resulted in a healthy crop with excellent fruit quality, aromatic intensity and fresh natural acidity.

VINEYARDS
From three distinct cool-climate vineyards in the Western Cape. The Overberg vineyards bring a classic and elegant strawberry fruit profile, while the vineyards in Elgin add structure and depth. The Durbanville vineyards give the final wine an alluring perfume.

WINEMAKING
The grapes were hand-picked into small lug boxes for transport to the winery. Half of the grapes were put into open-top fermenters and given hand punch-downs and the other half in closed tanks done with regular pump-overs. About 20% of the wine was whole-bunch fermented. After primary fermentation, the wine was basket-pressed and racked for malolactic fermentation and subsequent barrel maturation. Only French oak was used, primarily neutral oak, but with about 10% new oak.

An elegant, lightly-wooded style of Pinot Noir showing classic strawberry and red cherry notes coupled with a hint of spice. A firm, yet silky-smooth tannin-structure supports the lovely bright fruit characteristics of the wine.
