Jan Coetzee's 2013 CWG Auction Wine

Vriesenhof Pinot Noir Bin 115 2008100% Pinot Noir Wine of Origin Stellenbosch

Harvested during the last days of January 2008. Vinification took place in open fermenters, together with a small portion of pump-overs. The wine went into heavier roasted barrels for completion of alcoholic as well as malolactic fermentation.

Tasting Notes: A wine showing a deeper colour with earthiness and forest floor aromas. The heavier roasting highlights the structure of the wine. It needs time to evolve.

Pre-ferment cold maceration for 24 hours before inoculation in stainless steel tanks. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation was completed in tank. Wine was racked to first and second fill French oak barrels (225 litres) for maturation. After 12 months, the wine was racked and returned to third fill barrels for another 12 months of aging before the wine was racked to a 500 litre barrel for another 20 months. The period of maturation in the 500 litre barrel was intended for integration of aromas and softening of tannins.

Tasting Notes: Beautiful aromas of red fruit, leather and spice on the nose with fresh cherries and raspberry on the palate.
