‘Grapes from a Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge vineyard planted in 2009 on shale. Complex aromatics with red and black berries, floral perfume, musk and a touch of mushroom while the palate is pure and poised – great clarity of fruit, wonderfully energetic and silky tannins. All of a piece. Alc: 13.5%.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 97/100

‘Ridge is often the most backward of Hannes Storm's trio of remarkable single vineyard Pinot Noirs, sourced from an east-facing, high-density planting at 330 metres at La Vierge on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. Plum, black cherry and a hint of graphite are underpinned by plenty of grip, backbone and intensity. One to tuck away for a while. 2024-32’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 96/100

‘Clay -rich, low-crop Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge soil dictates style, vivid red berries & cherries, texture lithe, with tannin edge for food & some ageing. Savoury interplay from the oaking, but done with restraint, balance maintained. Like this range, not showy but nothing lacking, has complexity & admirable class. Also in 1.5L, as all.’ – Platter’s Guide, 4*(94/100)

Producer information Hannes Storm has spent nearly 2 decades in the pursuit of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay perfection. No single SA winemaker is more dedicated or focused on growing and vinifying Pinot and it shows. After 12 years as winemaker at Hamilton Russell, he started his eponymous label Storm Wines in 2012, and has since been focusing on the best-suited sites for this challenging variety. The remarkable Storm trio – the Ignis, Ridge and Vrede Pinot Noirs each come from one of the three appellations in the Hemel-en-Aarde. Storm Wines is the only producer with Pinots from each of these three appellations. If you have not tried these, you are missing out on South Africa’s benchmark Pinot Noirs.
