A single vineyard pinot noir from Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Only 3500 bottles of this wine are made. An Elegant wine with layers of dried fruit and spicy spices, accompanied by ripe, supple tannins.

 

The grapes come from one specific vineyard in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, South Africa. A traditional vinification takes place with maceration of the skins before and after fermentation. This is done to extract a little more colour, aromas and tannins - ideal for an elegant grape like Pinot Noir. The wine matures for 14 months in oak barrels, of which 30% are new. The wine is lightly filtered (to lose as little flavor as possible) and then bottled. The wine is ready to drink, but can be kept for at least ten years.
