Saurwein Om Pinot noir 2022

R591.00

Region: Hemel-En-Aarde

Tasting note:

‘One of a pair of very impressive Pinot Noirs from Jessica Saurwein, this is the more structured of the pair, using grapes from granite and deep clay soils on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. Savoury, spicy and intense, it has plenty of zip and focus, pomegranate, clove and redcurrant flavours and svelte tannins. 2024-30’ – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2023, 94/100

‘Grapes from Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. 10% whole-bunch fermentation before maturation lasting 10 months in 228-litre barrels, 25% new. Top notes of rose and herbs before cranberry, red cherry and white pepper. The palate is clean and fresh with fine tannins – pure and direct, this shows admirable refinement. Alc: 13.5%.’ – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 93/100

‘Red berries, fresh hibiscus, fruit-coated, velvety tannin, crisp acidity, medium-bodied. I love this wine, as it has depth and intensity beyond the initial fruit and is poised and oh so age-worthy too! Drink: 2023 – 2038’ – Winemaker
