Catherine, one of the original South African garagistes has evolved to become a premium artisan producer of fine wines. Her range includes Pinot noir, Sauvignon Blanc, a Rhone styled red blend and a fortified dessert wine.
These Pinot grapes are selected from the ultra cool Elgin Valley between Somerset West and Hermanus. The valley is located at an altitude of about 700 m above sea level and surrounded by a ring of mountains that results in a high annual precipitation and low average temperatures.
Broad, seductive compote of concentrated black cherries, mulberries and cranberries supported by mineral oak tannins. Powerful yet silky texture is seamlessly complex throughout.
This Pinot noir would be the perfect partner to an earthy, mushroom risotto.
