Pinot Noir, Elgin Vintners, South Africa 2017
Regular price £18.85
The Elgin Vintners are a partnership of six dedicated grape growers who, believing in the excellence of the terroir and diversity of their vineyards, have combined their resources to cultivate and produce a range of high quality wines. They hail from the beautiful Elgin Valley, a high inland plateau completely surrounded by mountains, 70 kilometres along the coast from Cape Town. This cool-climate region was long known for its apple orchards but since the turn of the century, quality conscious winemakers have been taking advantage of the temperate conditions, afforded by the high altitudes and cooling winds from the Atlantic, to grow exemplary Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
Pinot Noir 2017
Vibrant cherry fruit, crushed strawberry and orange zest combine with pleasing floral and herbal notes. Supple and well rounded in the mouth, with the perfect balance between fruit, tannin and acidity.
