Bosman Family Vineyards Upper Hemel & Aarde Pinot Noir
VINTAGE: 2018 WINEMAKING
COLOUR NOSE PALATE
Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, South Africa.
From our vineyards overlooking Walker Bay, at the foothills of the Babylonstoren mountains.
Due to the low winter rainfall the yield was lower. Overall bunches and berries were smaller, but that in turn resulted in concentrated flavours and excellent quality.
The cooled grapes were transported to our cellar where they were hand sorted, destemmed and gently crushed. Regular pump overs and punch downs assured colour extraction. Aged for 10 months in 20% new French Burgundian oak.
100% Pinot Noir.
Alc 13.5% Vol R/Sugar 2.4 g/l TA 5.4 g/l
Vibrant purple heart with cerise rim.
Rich, bright fresh berries, a slight earthiness and subtle spicy notes.
Medium to full-bodied palate where soft tannins contribute to a fine structure. A balanced wine with a lingering, memorable finish.
A wine to have on its own or as an aperitif, but it pairs well with cured meats, salads and dishes such as seared tuna and roasted game.
To be enjoyed 1 to 5 years after the year of vintage.
