An elegant wine, beautifully rich in ripe berries and cherries, complemented by pronounced velvety and nutty flavors in the middle of the mouth, followed by soft tannins on the finish. Slightly chilled, this Pinot Noir is delicious with lobster, grilled fish and other fish dishes, including fish soups. It is also the perfect addition to grilled meat dishes.

The Robertson Valley is characterized by cold winters and sunny summers, with an average annual rainfall of 350-400mm. In summer, a fresh southern breeze cools the vineyards, allowing the grapes to ripen evenly. The dry climate and wind keep pests to a minimum, resulting in low pesticide spraying schedules. The automated irrigation systems are linked to the data from the weather station, and soil moisture monitoring ensures that the vines receive the correct amount of water needed to produce grapes of optimal ripeness and developed flavors. An abundance of limestone and gravelly soils are complemented by a heavy clay component that provides excellent water retention as well as giving structure and fullness to the wines. This adds complexity and structure to the wines. When the red Pinot Noir grapes are fermented, this is done in an environment where the temperature is kept low. This is done to ensure that the fruit and invigorating freshness of the grape remains in the juice. The fermentation also takes place in a cold environment so that the properties are preserved throughout the winemaking process.
