Nico Grobler has always paid plenty of attention to the quality of his entry-point wines, a focus that’s apparent on this juicy, acid-driven Pinot Noir. Made with five different Burgundian clones and 20% whole bunches, it has nuanced 10% new oak, lovely purity and bright raspberry and rooibos tea flavours. 2023-29
The beautiful Elgin Valley is a cool climate high inland plateau, completely surrounded by mountains. Just 70 km from Cape Town, South Africa, it is rapidly gaining a reputation for the production of premium quality wines.
We are slowly unlocking the secret of the Elgin Valley. The range of wines are designed to be fresh, pure, fruit driven, light and accessible with all the fundamentals of premium wine whilst still showcasing the unique profile from the Elgin Valley.
It’s all about strawberries and cherries, some citrus notes with a fresh and pure profile. Linear, tight with red fruit and a beautiful soft texture with a long pure finish.
