Cape Winemakers Guild

Vriesenhof Pinot Noir 2003

Punching down the cap during vinification has resulted in a firm wine with high extract, without losing the fragile components of the variety. Made from Pinot Noir clone 777 on Malmesbury shale soil from the top of the hill at Vriesenhof. Long skin contact and completion of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in new wood to support the Pinot fruit, gave birth to this wine. 76 cases of this wine were sold at the 2005 Auction. Tasting Note: Made solely from Pinot Noir clone 777, this wine shows the typical fragile red berry fruitiness (raspberry) on the aroma with a lively, long aftertaste which will improve in time.
