Wine Information:

Country: South Africa

Region: South Africa

Appellation: Elgin



This Pinot bursts with fresh cranberry, strawberry and star anise spice on the nose. It is sumptuous on the mid-palate, offset by a balanced acidity and beautifully friable tannins, typical of Pinot from Elgin with its moderate day temperatures and cooler nights.

It will pair well with a wild mushroom risotto.

Sourced from Elgin, and is the first release of a Great Heart Pinot Noir. • The parcel is located at 420 meters above sea level, South-facing. • Decomposed Table Mountain Sandstone soil. • Hand harvested. • Crushed to tank whole-bunch with a cold soak for 3 days. • Fermented with indigenous yeasts with temperatures below 28ºC. • After two weeks, the wine was pressed to older French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation. • Aged for 6 months in 500L French oak.
