Cap Maritime, 'Pinot Noir', 2017, Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, South Africa


This is a world-class Pinot Noir. Absolutely delicious. Blueberry, blackberry and wild herb aromas, touches of rosemary and bramble too. Gentle tannins, juicy, deep, and yet serious and silky. Effortless drinking, and oozes elegance and quality. This is a benchmark wine and one we recommend highly. Great Pinot Noir!
