4 ½ Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Fine aromas on 16, more savoury notes than easily charming fruity ones. A firmer tannic structure than many local pinots, the elegance even a little severe in youth, but this, taken together with profound fruit, very satisfying & suggesting a good future.



Winemaker Notes

Intense, vivid translucent youthful purple-ruby appearance. The wine shows pronounced lifted perfume on the nose with red berry fruit, musk, wild mushrooms and hints of savoury richness and spice and a clean vibrant minerality. . On the palate there are very pure Pinot fruit flavours on entry with red cherry and musk flavours coupled with fresh acidity. The wine has layered complexity with great elegance and finesse. Very fine lacy, almost powdery tannin on the finish.
