Momento Tinta Barocca 2020


Region: Western Cape

Tasting note:

‘If anyone can bring a feminine touch to the normally somewhat rustic, stubble-chinned Tinta Barocca, it’s Marelise Niemann. This is spicy, refined and scented, with raspberry and red cherry fruit, tangy acidity and some tannic grip at the last. Drink 2022-27.’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

‘Delicate expression of 40+ year old vines. Fabulous 2019’s bright acidity lights up wild berries, lively dry tannins add polished leather undertone. Bot River, Stellenbosch & Swartland provenance, as last.’ – Platter’s Guide, 4*

‘Cherries, cassis, roses and cinnamon joined by porcini mushroom and soy make this an alluring and complex nose added to by the ripe phenolic grip and textured, coating palate. The balance between lifted and bright primary red fruit notes and that savoury gravitas mimics high end Pinot Noir. Tightly wound and complex, this wine can age beyond 2025.’ – Marelise Niemann, Winemaker
