‘Produced by a winemaker based in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley - none other than Gordon Newton-Johnson - this Elgin Pinot Noir showcases the 113 clone. Fermented with 15% whole bunches, it has top notes of clove and stem ginger, layers of raspberry, red cherry and strawberry fruit, scented 25% new wood and graceful, ethereal tannins. 2024-30’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 96/100

‘Farm’s oldest pinot vineyard, Dijon 113 clone. Highly acclaimed since 2016 (4.5 stars, 93 pts) debut, 2021 even finer than 2020 (4.5 stars, 93 pts), takes this label to next level. Intense & layered with dark, perfumed fruit yet inherently bright, thanks to firm yet supremely supple tannin structure. Natural ferment, portion whole bunches, 12 months in oak, as sibling, but this 50% new. More depth & complexity.’ – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

‘This vineyard expresses a range of flavours from vibrant raspberry, strawberry, currant and cherry. We respect the power and elegance delivered in this beautiful expression of a balanced bright red to darker berried flavour spectrum, delivered by the older Dijon clones PN 113 in our Shannon “RocknRolla”.’ – Winemaker

Producer information The name Shannon pays homage to the owner’s ancestors who come from Irish descent. Located in the Elgin Valley within the Kogelberg Biosphere, Shannon Vineyards’ unique terroir speaks for itself. With the Peninsula Dam creating the eastern boundary of the farm, the vineyards experience a cooling blanket of mist which is such a great geographical influencer on the farm’s climate, that Shannon has included the river mist in their logo. As such, the winemaking follows a minimal intervention approach to allow the different terroirs to be expressed in the wines.
