Why we love it
A great representation of Pinot Noir from the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley – vibrant density, lovely structure and elegant tannins.

Tasting notes
Pale ruby red in colour. On the nose, aromas of strawberries and red cherries, with a sense of salinity adding to the complexity. Vibrant red-fruit flavours on the palate, with fresh acidity, elegant tannins and a pleasantly saline quality to the finish.

Food pairing
Pair with lighter meat dishes such as duck, venison or rabbit, or with lamb cutlets.

Additional information
The Herten-Haspeslagh family took over the farm in 2021 and are transitioning to organic farming practices.

The grapes came from a single vineyard planted in ancient, decomposed granite soils with quartzite and clay inclusions. The cool conditions during ripening, derived from the South Atlantic Ocean, make the site ideal for Pinot Noir.

Fermentation took place in stainless steel, with 65% fermented with selected yeast strains and the
remaining 35% left to run wild with native yeast strains. The wine was then kept in 228-litre French-oak barrels for three months, before being racked and returned to the same barrels for a further eight months.
