Additional information

Region

Located an hour east along the coast from Cape Town, Walker Bay is largely affected by the Atlantic Ocean making it one of the coolest growing regions in the cape. This combined with the ocean mists and the shelter of the surrounding Hemel – En – Aarde valley make it an ideal location for growing the notoriously fickle Pinot Noir grape.

Production

From their website:

VINIFICATION We adopted the Burgundian model of high density planting with our Pinot Noir vineyard. Close plantings offer greater competition between vines and consequently brighter wines with depth and colour. Fermentation is taking place in stainless steel tanks and then transferred to barrels where secondary malolactic fermentation is performed in French Oak barrels. Matured for a total of 10 months with a 30% new oak compliment.
