Notes on viticulture and winemaking:

By micro managing a small distinct section of the vineyard and intensive berry sampling and tastings, I pick at very specific ripening levels and flavour profiles. After cooling the bunches, I crush into open top barrels for wild fermentation to start as slowly as possible, with 1/3 whole bunch, 1/3 whole berry and 1/3 crushed and de-stemmed. I punch through only once a day and the fermentation is allowed until a reading of about

5 Balling before pressing. I press with a basket press directly into old French oak barrels where fermentation finishes and malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is kept on the rough lees for 8 to 15 months before racking clean and bottling with as little finings or additives as possible. The style is very minimalistic, very expressive and defines the terroir of Polkadraai Pinot Noir

Look for these flavours:

Red Currents and plum characters dominate the nose with kalamata olive backdrop of flavours. On the pallet the wine expresses red cherries and clean smooth tannins and creamy structure.

Cellaring potential:

Lots of ageing potential in this one, with a cellaring potential of 5-8 vears.

Food suggestions:

Carpaccio and hard cheeses or a lamb terrine with a peppery rocket salad is perfect with this wine.

Suitable for vegans?
