Colour: Dark Ruby coloured.
Nose: Poignant oak and cherry aromas dominate the nose. Supporting aromas are predominately vegetative in nature and include forest floor, rhubarb and mushroom.
Palate: On the palate the gentleness of the Pinot Noir grape comes to the fore.
Food: Perfect for white meat and vegetable dishes.
Ageing: Will age splendidly over the next three to five years.
Vinivication: 30% whole bunch and 70% destemmed. No cold soak took place. Grapes and must was not inoculated with selected wine yeasts and fermentation was left to start naturally. Malolactic fermentation took place in 300 L French Oak barrels. The wine was not racked before bottling and did not go through any filtrations prior to bottling.
Viticulture: The Pinot Noir vineyards have a (cooler) south facing aspect, and are 310mabove sea level. Planted with a vine spacing of 2.5m x 1.5m in deep red/yellow soils with high water retention capacity, but very well drained.wijnen van Winter's Drift of ontdek het wijnhuis Winter's Drift
