Cape Winemakers Guild

Vriesenhof Pinot Noir 2003

100% Pinot Noir: 40% Clone 115a, 60% Clone 777 Both clones 115a and 777 were fermented in open fermentors and the cap was pushed back into the juice 4-5 times per day. The alcoholic, as well as the malolactic fermentation, was completed in new Burgundian oak and the wine bottled in December 2003. Tasting note: This blend of two clones from granite soil shows a strong earthy, mushroom, forest floor character, with the wood still dominating on the nose. The mouthfeel is broad, soft and creamy and shows firm woodiness which will integrate in time.
