Wine Maker Notes
Our vineyards are unique in the Cape in that we copy the Burgundian model of planting Pinot Noir according to its tightly spaced tradition. Such close plantings offer greater competition between vines, leading to less vigour and consequent brighter wines with more depth and colour. It must be appreciated that close plantings are historically in keeping with vineyards being tended to by horses verses modern day tractors which have transformed the industry to offering wider spaced vineyard rows. A bold wine with rich fruity expression, packed with a medley of dark berry and plum flavours . Open textured, velvety and appealing for covert enjoyment from a lingering and expressive finish. Will mature for many years to come.
