'Taking its place among the elite of Elgin Pinot Noirs, La Brune's flagship bottling uses a mixture of the 113, 115 and 777 clones and 50% whole bunch fermentation. Aged in 40% larger oak, it's a beautifully scented, enticing red, with rose petal and ginger spice aromas, detailed tobacco leaf tannins, lots of energy and tension and a palate of sweet pomegranate, hibiscus and wild strawberry. 2024-30' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 95/100

‘This is a Pinot Noir that has a Burgundian heart. It starts off with an incredibly pure, seductive nose. Rose petals, florals, good intensity, shy cherry and tea leaf give way to a precise palate that’s slow to unfurl, adding dark fruit weight. The palate continues with a great sense of purpose and has good tannic heft that adds extra definition to the dark-spiced and tea-laced fruit.’ – James Pietersen, April 2023

Producer information Nico Grobler is an extremely accomplished winemaker that still, somehow, flies under the radar. Responsible for the multi-award-winning Eikendal wines, Nico and his wife have set up La Brune in Elgin and focus solely on Pinot Noir. Hell-bent on making wines with natural acidity, his value Pinot is a great demonstration of this.
