Op die Berg Pinot Noir 2012

R 200.00


A consistent winner of both national and international wine awards, our Pinot Noir is nourished by the unique ‘terroir’ of the Graaff family farm in the Witzenberg Mountain range in Ceres, better known until recently for high quality apples and pears.

At an altitude of 960 meters above sea level, with winter snowfalls often covering the vineyards, a truly continental climate facilitates gradual ripening for a concentrated, luscious, elegant, ‘terroir’ driven wine which, as the vines mature, produces increasingly perfumed wines with each successive vintage.

Carefully handpicked in Ceres in the early hours of the morning, the grapes are vinified by Cellar Master Charles Hopkins in the safety of our cellar at De Grendel.

Bright cherry red in colour, perfumed dried rose petals on the nose supersede luscious red cherry, raspberry and mulberry aromas underscored by nuances of clove and earthy fynbos. An entry of tart cranberry and black plum on the palate is emboldened by fruity pomegranate tannins before finishing with soft, velvety elegance.

The acidity driven elegance and mild tannins of Pinot Noir make for what some would describe as the ultimate food loving wine. Elegant berry flavours compliment game bird, chicken or veal, while gentle tannins and succulent acidity cut through richer venison, lamb and even spicier curried dishes.
