Perhaps the keenest characteristic of this wine is its delicious harmony of sweet raspberry fruit and soft balanced perfumed tannins. There is also a delightful lingering long finish on the wine.

Ageing Potential
A great future is expected, will mature to greater heights!

Blend Information
100% Pinot Noir

Food Suggestions
Pinot Noir is the most food flexible varietal. Its richness comes from a multitude of layers of flavour. Enjoy with fish, poultry, game birds and red meat dishes.

In The Vineyard
The heavy clay soils of the lower Hemel-en-Aarde Valley are said to be the reason for this area’s ability to repeatedly offer vintages of premium quality Pinot Noir wines. Clay soils contribute through their moisture support as well as through their complex soil chemistry. Add to this Hermanus’s soft summer weather conditions, then the result is a happy combination for a particularly fussy grape.

About The Harvest
The harvest was swift and neat – all complete in eight days. A constant 24º Balling of ripeness was achieved through all parts of the Pinot vineyard. Great natural fruit acid levels and secure clean grapes!
