Pinot Noir 2018

Wooding: 100% 228L French oak barrels

Tight grain: 100%

A particularly bright, tight and pure Pinot noir with marked elegance. Clean and lifted wild red fruit and sour cherry aromas introduce a long, gentle palate with a salty minerality. This is a graceful and age-worthy wine with an almost crystalline purity.

Pinot Noir 2017

Alcohol: 13.8%

Acid: 5.61

pH: 3.44

Residual Sugar: 1.85

Barrel Ageing: 9.5 months

Wooding: 100% 228L French oak barrels

Tight grain: 100%

Yield: 6 tons per hectare

Production: 322.58 cases

Release date: February 2018
Probably the best Tesselaarsdal to date, the 2017 has greater depth, structure and plushness of palate than 2016 (and even 2015) without sacrificing the clean, lifted blue fruit that is a characteristic of the best Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge Pinot noir. This is a wine with the tight minerality of the old-world and the pure sumptuous fruit of the new-world.

Pinot Noir 2016

Alcohol: 13.8%

Acid: 6.3

pH: 3.38

Residual Sugar: 1.8

Barrel Ageing: 9.5 months

Wooding: 100% 228L French oak barrels

Tight grain: 100%

Yield: 6 tons per hectare

Production: 107.83 cases

Release date: February 2017
The wine has a lovely, fine, bright sour red berry character and even hints of violets on the nose. It has a more lifted acidity and tightness, bright and elegant start to finish with a hardening line of minerality placing it more in the old-world than the new. It is distinctly feminine and elegant with a lovely dusting of grape tannins.
