Paul Cluver Pinot Noir 2010

The grapes were selected from our highest lying Pinot Noir vineyards. They were harvested, cold soaked for 6 days with the fermentation starting naturally and then inoculated. Punched down 3 times per day. After fermentation only free run juice was transferred to barrel for malolactic fermentation. The wine was then left in barrel for 11 months before bottling. Tasting Notes: The texture is astounding – and where the power of this wine lies. The integration of oak adds to its finesse and aristocracy. Grapes are sourced from the mountain vineyards on De Rust Estate and are all new clones i.e. 667, 113, 115. The palate is a symphony of flavours, starting with cherries; the mid-palate is concentrated, with a distinct mineral character and a very long aftertaste. Serve with venison dishes or beef fillet.
