This Pinot Noir is elegant and refined with Indian spices, cinnamon and cassis on the nose. Dry and classic but youthful, the tannins are velvety and distinctive, combining in a rich, lasting mouthfeel. A steely backbone gives this wine great freshness.
The 'Cuvée Cinéma' Pinot Noir is produced from fruit grown from a single vineyard - one of the highest in the Hemel-en-Aarde region. This region is characterised by a moderate climate which results in delayed ripening and a late harvest. The soils are clay and shale in composition, which allows optimum fruit development while naturally restricting vigour and keeping crop levels low.
'Cuvée Cinéma' was fermented using only native yeasts with a ratio of whole clusters (30%) to whole berries (70%) in a stainless-steel tank. The total time in tank was 30 days. The wine was then transferred to barrels, 30% of which were new, where it remained for 11 months before bottling.
