100% Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is a noble cultivar with small berries and thin skins. It is a “red white wine” – elegant delicate, feminine – that has the ability to express the terroir and record the vintage more accurately than any other cultivar. Our 2012 Pinot Noir was matured in French Oak barrels for 10 months, bearing in mind the wise words of an old Burgundian Vintner “…wood should be like a theatre platform for her to perform on; not a curtain that would hide the play”!
The 2012 vintage yielded a small crop, revealing itself with a lovely intensity – yet, clearly showcasing the elegant Haute Cabriere style, with great harmony of discrete fruit and a long aftertaste. If stored correctly, this Pinot Noir can evolve beautifully for another 5 – 7 years.
Enjoy with oysters, game fish like yellowtail, rare beef, lamb and fine African venison. Pinot Noir should be served slightly chilled at 16° C.
