Since its release in 2015, Saurwein Nom Pinot Noir has cultivated a niche following. Favourable reviews by Neal Martin and a great response to both the 2015 and 2016 after the 2017 Young Guns showcase, cemented this wine as one to look out for.

Nom stands for nombulelo (gratitude in 'Xhosa') and Nomkhubulwane (a forgotten African goddess of agriculture). Situated at 700m altitude, the vineyard is a place where gratitude is instilled and tales appear.

Grapes of origin:
Kaaimansgat Vineyard, Elandskloof Valley, Villiersdorp. The soil is granite with a significant portion of clay. Pinot noir clone 115 and 777.

Tasting notes:
'Descriptors on the nose is orange rind, toasted cocoa bean, rose hip/ cherry/ savoury notes. Descriptors on the flavour and palate is black cherry fruit/ hibiscus/ “garrigue”/ umami / roasted chestnuts velvety, firm tannins and balanced acidity' – Jessica Saurwein, Winemaker

The 2018 Nom Pinot Noir is the fourth release from the W.O of Elandskloof. It has a glorious bouquet of red cherry, cranberry and wild hedgerow scents that are very pure and well defined. The palate is succulent on the entry, presenting tart red cherries and orange pee and leading to a precise, very Burgundy-inspired finish. This is perhaps the most harmonious vintage that I have encountered from Saurwein. Produced in limited quantity but worth the hunt. Good luck! - Neal Martin
