The Pinot Noir has been sourced from a wide range of different vineyards in its time, including from the Paul Cluver farm in Elgin and, more recently, the Hemel en Aarde Ridge.
So, whilst some of the wines are not currently from the Stellenbosch farm the objective remains to find unique external sites, learning and understanding the vineyard block and, in Ginny’s own words, ‘trying not to mess up the wine before it gets into a bottle. Oh, and of course trying to be confident so that everyone believes that the wine is genius…’
An expressive Pinot which shows hints of herbs and spice on the nose, with layers of bright cherry and strawberry fruit on the palate. Lovely fresh acidity, with a floral lift on the finish.
