Region: Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley
“Ignis Pinot Noir hails from a northern slope in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Organically farmed, the vineyard is cluttered with round pebbles on the soil surface with underlying decomposed granite. Latin for “fire”, ignis refers to the fact that granite is an igneous rock formation – “from fire to stone”.
This wine displays an array of aromas including raspberry and wild strawberry notes with underlying subtle wood spices. A silky tannin structure complements the primary fruit perfume of this harmonious wine.
An elegant wine showing beautiful balance – a faithful depiction of the site’s decomposed granite soil.” – Hannes Storm
