Cold Mountain Vineyards, Brunia Pinot Noir 750ml 2017South Africa, Walker Bay
'This is definitely a cool, light touch Pinot Noir with a bright, lively cherry ruby red colour. The aromatics are perfumed, lifted and refined showing notes of violets, fresh raspberries, red currant, red cherry combined with a complexing sappy spice. The palate too is equally clean, pure and refined and displays a taught, sappy resinous red cherry and red bramble berry intensity with subtle oak spice notes. There is a lightness and elegance to the texture but also a noticeable core of wound spring tension. This is an eminently classy delicious expression without being profoundly complex in its youth. Effortless to drink, this wine is another fine addition to the ongoing and developing tapestry of Pinot Noir in the new South Africa. Drink now and over the next 10+ years.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 92/100
'Brunia is an impressive first release from the Mullineux’s assistant winemaker, Wade Sander, produced with fruit from up-and-coming Sondagskloof. Soft, supple and juicy, it’s very much a hedonist’s Pinot Noir, with sweet raspberry coulis flavours and fine tannins. Drink 2019-23.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2018, 90/100

About Cold Mountain Vineyards:
