Product Description

Hailing from a mature, close-planted block in the Maple Ridge vineyard near Hahndorf, the fruit was handpicked and Wild fermented in small hand batches, and matured in French Oak. The mostly whole-bunch ferment gives this pinot its drive – savoury, spicy, red berry flavours, and a firm acidity that will ensure this wine continues to improve over the medium term.

Wine Wise: 4 red Stars

“An Attractive dark cherry style with some whole bunch complexity. The flavour intensity is matched by appropriately firm tannins. Give this one a little time.”

Patrick Eckel: 95

“A restrained, elegant wine that shows a lot now but has plenty in store for the future.”
