‘From a single vineyard in the Overberg, planted to rocky shale soils and clone PN115. It immediately impresses with a nose like no other: Gentle and slowly evolving, it’s extremely complex with notes of damson, reined in red cherry, earth, and has a thread of savoury interest that weaves through it. Layers of bruised flowers, lavender, violets, crushed leaves, and attractive sandalwood add an almost haunting quality to the bouquet. The perfumed nose is balanced by a granular tannin density, coated with dark cherry and spice. The acidity is fresh and underscored by a lingering, saline end. Certainly the most unique Pinot Noir in SA.’ – James Pietersen, April 2022

“This isolated vineyard in Overberg is planted in rocky shale soils. It is surrounded by mountains and covered with a misty blanket of fog in the mornings. Pinot thrives in these circumstances and the resulting wine has classic strawberry and cherry fruit with a touch of peppery spice. The wine is finished off with polished tannins and an elegant mouthfeel.” – Kara-Tara Wines
