Notes

'Picked earlier than his other Pinots as a rule, Cuvée Cinéma comes from the Hemel en Aarde Ridge and sees 30% whole bunches. Tangy, refreshing and well balanced, with floral aromas, subtle oak, some pepper spice and acidity that lifts the finish. 2018-25'. – Tim Atkin, Special South Africa Report 2017, 95/100

Vineyard block:
The 2016 Cuvée Cinéma Pinot Noir is produced from fruit grown from a single vineyard – one of the highest in the Hemel-en-Aarde region. This region is characterised by a moderate climate which results in delayed ripening and a late harvest. The soils are clay and shale in composition, which allows optimum fruit development while naturally restricting vigour and keeping crop levels low.

Production:
Cuvée Cinéma 2016 was fermented using only native yeasts with a ratio of whole clusters (40%) to whole berries (60%) in a stainless steel tank. The total time in tank was 30 days. The wine was then transferred to barrel (30% new) where it remained for 11 months before bottling.

Analysis:
pH: 3.61 Alc: 13.5% TA: 5.057 RS: 2.5
