This Pinot Noir has been nurtured from start to finish. Meticulously managed vineyards, hand sorted grapes and gentle cellar practices have resulted in a wine that displays beautifully defined red berry fruits, an intriguing hint of violets on the nose and a rounded structure imparted by subtle use of French oak. International Trophy Gold at the Decanter...
Tourmaline is a creamy, barrel fermented blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier. This wine is a true reflection of the Swartland terroir and will be best enjoyed with poultry, seafood or light pastas.
The wine shows bright straw yellow colour with golden highlights and ample aromas in scents that recall tropical fruits and grapefruit, mingling with hints of oatmeal, caramel and nutmeg. Medium-bodied with richly complex flavours, mellow fruit sensations are deftly fused with oak in a long, elegant finish.
Delicious, fruity and spicy wine made from the popular Spanish Variety. Soft expressions of plum and cherries, with a delicate hint of spice, and harmonious barrel integration. Top class Grenache is now synonymous with the Piekenierskloof. Will age 4 to 5 years.
Lively fresh lemon and lime notes from the Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc are given added interest with fragrant floral hints from the Verdelho and Viognier components. On the palate, the wine is elegant and complex with flavours of honeysuckle, lime marmalade and fresh almonds, all wrapped in creamy oak.
The Appearence is very dark purple with garnet undertones. The nose jumps out the glass. Dark fruit, cinnamon, mace and black pepper with a hint of fynbos. Bold dark fruit and savoury spice on the palate with beautifully balanced fruit towards the end. This fruit is complimented with bold, ripe tannin and a hint of good barrel use.
Hope on Hopkins take on a classic: made using the London Dry one-shot method, with their Single Malt Vodka as its base, they distill the spirit a fourth time to infuse it with carefully selected botanicals. Smooth and sophisticated with hints of citrus complementing rosemary and juniper. Serve with a twist of lemon or a sprig of rosemary.
This wine has a well balanced acidity which is supported by a crisp, refreshing palate.
