Vinification

The Pinot Noir grapes are handpicked from one of the most sought after vineyards in the Franschhoek valley, high up on south-westerly facing slopes, overlooking the Grande Provence Estate.  The vines flourish in well drained, decomposed sandstone soils, and indigenous fynbos plants are left to grow naturally, to enhance the natural beauty of the vineyards.

Style

The wine has a perfume of strawberries and red cherries on the nose with ripe berry fruit that follows through to the elegant, juicy palate.  A soft and velvety mouth feel is complemented by well integrated oak flavours.

Serving suggestion

Enjoy this wine with pork roast, poultry dishes with gravy sauced and seared salmon.
