This Pinot Noir comes from one of the highest planted vineyard sites in the Elgin valley that is fastidiously managed to achieve classic varietal character in harmony with the inherent terroir. Variable soil types include heavy red clays, Table Mountain sandstone, Bokkeveld shale, Tukulu and Silica quartz with underlying Caoline clay. The cooler climate ensured a long, slow ripening period to produce outstanding quality Pinot Noir with balanced ripeness showing good colour and flavour concentration. Yields averaged four to six tons per hectare, and were handpicked in small batches to retain fruit quality and integrity. Bunch sorting was done in the vineyard.

93 | A fragrant high-toned wine with red cherry and cranberry aromas. I adore the cherry-stone nature of the finish and the gentle chalky tannins.

85 | Forward, slightly sour cherry, unbalanced acid.

89 | Bright and crisp. The acidity is quite marked so the palate looks a little out of kilter? Lacks fruit.

90 | simple, bright fresh succulent, a little thin and ready for action. good acidity and fresh tannic edge
