Kapokberg Pinot Noir 2015, Groote Post

£16.99 per bottle

About this wine

The Groote Post Kapokberg Pinot Noir shows ripe, red fruit upfront on the nose with early morning farmyard blossoms. The palate is full and voluptuous with beautiful cherry notes and silky tannins that support the structure on the finish.  Kapokberg translated as “snowy mountain” – in days gone by, this hill, covered in white Spring flowers, resembled a snow capped mountain. At 459m above sea level, it is the highest hill at Groote Post and bears the name of their vineyard selection wines.

    string(578) "If Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of wines then Pinot Noir is the wine of kings. So delicate, pure, feminine and graceful, it is arguably the finest variety in the world, responsible for the great wines of Champagne and Burgundy. Temperamental, yes, and difficult to cultivate, but can any other grape offer such dimensions of flavour or intellectual gratification? I would struggle to find one stronger! Summer berry compote flavours, with redcurrant and pink petal aromas, it is often pale in the glass, yet can offer depth and vigour simply unachievable from any other grape."
