Why do we love this wine?

We haven’t historically sourced a lot of pinot noir from South Africa. So if we’re going to do so, it better be good. And who better to bring us a stunner than Julien Schaal, the wine virtuoso making incredible stuff in both Alsace and South Africa? This pinot comes from a vineyard in Elgin, the coolest viticultural area in South Africa. Sounds ideal for pinot, right? Red clay, sea breezes and high altitude combine to provide complexity, nuance and texture to the juice. Hand harvesting, a natural ferment and 12 months in large format barrels mark the highlights of the crafting of this wine. Bright crimson in colour with a delicate nose of earthy aromas and red berries, this pinot hits the palate with savoury notes and just a touch of oak. If you didn’t already know that South Africa can produce great pinot, consider yourself put on notice.
