Freshly crushed raspberries, some sour cherries and red currants. Full of lively ripe fruit and spicy notes with notable earth driven layers of clay minerality. The result is a young Pinot Noir with a nice depth for its age, complex and with a focus of how these young vines are going to look in a couple of years time. 10% whole bunch and natural fermentation!!

Hand-picked grapes in small 18 kg boxes, one night in the cool store (5°C) and than destemmed. Seven days of cold soak in our red fermentor, followed by spontaneous wild yeast fermentation.
After fermentation, the grape-skins were slowly pressed in a stainless steel basket press. Natural malolactic fermentation in selected barrels. Barrel ageing without one racking, for 11 months; no fining and no filtering.
If you prefer a wine with a mineral quality made in a simple, elegant way you should go for our Spioenkop range. All “Spioenkop” Wines are made from grapes coming 100% from the Elgin Valley.
