Cape Winemakers Guild

De Grendel Op die Berg Pinot Noir 2019

100% Pinot Noir

The hand-picked grapes were 60% whole bunch clusters and 40% destalked in open fermenters. Pneumatic punch-downs were applied throughout the fermenting process. Basket pressed. The wine went through malolactic fermentation in barrel, with 12 months of maceration thereafter. It was then filtrated and bottled.

Tasting Notes: A traditional crimson red Pinot Noir proposes a spray of hibiscus, strawberry, and delicate whiffs of damp forest floor. Fresh sour cherry flavours are bolstered by nutty porcini with lengthy mouthfeel.

Ready for drinking now until 2027.

Winemaker: Charles Hopkins
