Pinot Noir 2016, Donkiesbaai

£25.40 per bottle

About this wine

The Donkiesbaai Pinot Noir displays notes of elegant burnt red cherry and rich berry aromas.  There is a subtle freshness that is backed up by an earthiness with hints of rose Turkish delight that adds to the complexity of the nose.  The rich berry and burnt cherry aromas follow through beautifully on the palate.  The wine shows a fruit dominant style, with a fresh, vibrant character that creates an elegant, juicy finish.

    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."
