Cape Winemakers Guild

De Grendel op die Berg Pinot Noir 2009

From the highest vineyard on our farm at 350 metres above sea level, the fruit is destalked into a 7 ton wood cask where it underwent four days of cold maceration and inoculation. The skins were gently punched down, basket-pressed and put straight into new French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation. The wine was then transferred into 3rd fill barrels for 13 months of maturation. Tasting note: Bright red colour. On the nose there are flavours of pine needles, earthiness & minerality. This is balanced by firm, natural acidity, and the older oak maturation ensures soft tannins with elegance and promising long ageing potential.
