Paul Cluver Auction Selection Pinot Noir 2017

100% Chardonnay

Wine of Origin Elgin

Pinot Noir sourced from two of our highest lying Pinot Noir vineyards. After extensive bunch and berry sorting, the grapes (15% whole cluster) were transferred to 3.5 ton wooden open top fermenters by gravity. After seven days of cold soaking, the fermentation started spontaneously. During fermentation, the skin cap was punched down by hand twice a day. The wine was pressed and transferred to barrel for malolactic fermentation and maturation. After 13 months, the wine was blended for bottling.

Tasting Notes: A wine with a beautiful bright red colour and an inviting nose of red berry fruit. The palate is juicy, with fresh red fruit and fine, grainy tannins. An elegant wine with a lingering savoury aftertaste.

Drink now and over the next 8 – 10 years.

Winemaker: Andries Burger
