Description

The nose is aromatically scented with exciting whiffs of truffles and fruits of the forest. The wine is full with soft tannins, which ensure many years of positive development. An excellent crop and an excellent wine!

The Hemel-enAarde Valley has consistently offered world class quality Pinot Noir wines. A result of an ideal combination of soil and climate a situation which is repeated year after year. It is claimed that Pinot Noir has no definite varietal characteristic of its own. Its flavour and character are dictated by the soil in which it is grown. Most vintages are preceded by an enthusiastically awaited dry weather build-up to actual harvest. In fact the 2007 vintage experienced hot and very dry pre-conditions. But 2008 vintage was very different, it was a wet season, the soils were never dry & grapes ripened under non-stress conditions.
