Region: Stellenbosch, South Africa
Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: These vines are now 13 years old, which means the wine has more depth and texture, presence and poise. The whole berry ferment lifts the aromatic while bringing supple tannin and length. Dark, red fruit and subtle earthiness. Gentle oaking and on-interventionist winemaking have contributed to producing a pure expression of Elgin Pinot Noir. This is not a Pinot for those who think good red wine needs to be black, oaky and tannic. It is a fragrant, bright and refreshing Pinot with wonderful succulence and expressive fruitiness.
