Cape Winemakers Guild

Vriesenhof Pinot Noir 2003

This wine is a blend of clone 777 (60%) and clone 115 (40%), fermented in open fermenters with the cap pushed back into the juice 4-5 times per day. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation was completed in new Burgundian barrels for 9 months prior to bottling. The wine was bottled in December 2003 Tasting Notes 76 cases of this wine were on Auction in 2004. It still shows a little charring on the aroma although the wood is now well integrated. The strong earthly forest floor character with a little dampness and pine needles is very prominent on the palate. The finish is well balanced with a soft creaminess and a firm woodiness underpinning the palate (mouthfeel).
