A delicious South African Pinot Noir from a cool, coastal region.
The medium bodied 2014 vintage has a soft and supple palate, with light and pure red fruit characters. Garnet in colour, the wine offers opulent aromas of strawberries and cherries and hints of forest floor. The oak influence, as always, is subtle and understated, supporting the fruit driven profile of the wine.
Country: South Africa
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Seven Springs Vineyard is a premium wine producer, situated on the R320 Hemel en Aarde Valley road, between the seaside town of Hermanus and the spa town of Caledon, in the picturesque Western Cape, South Africa. The vineyard nestles between Shaws Mountain to the north and the Teslaarsdal Mountain Range to the south, with Walker Bay and the Atlantic Ocean beyond these mountains. It is this oceanic influence, coupled with our shale derived soils, known locally as Bokkeveld Shale, that gives our vines the potential to produce exceptional grapes from both north and south facing vineyards. Noble varieties, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Pinot Noir, have been planted to express the full potential of each cultivar.
