R100.00 R99.00

Cherry and bright red berry fruits form the backbone of the Pinot Noir 2014, whilst hints of spice and forest floor can be detected. The palate shows a suave elegance, neatly framed by polished grainy tannins. Good balance and graceful poise are amply exhibited.

Description

Now enjoying it’s first flush of youth, Benguela Cove’s elegant Pinot Noir 2014 will turn voluptuous as it ages. A medium bodied wine, it already exhibits grace and power. The wines unique profile can be traced to its terroir.

Vineyard

Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is located on the shores of the Botriver Lagoon, close to the cold Atlantic Ocean. 1.45 hectares have been planted with PN115 and PN777 Grape varietals. The vineyards face south, for coolness, causing the grapes to ripen slowly. The varietals differ slightly and allow for notes of berry and strawberry that vary in strength. Soil: The soil is Bokkeveld shale with a fairly high clay content. Gypsum and Lime have been added to the soil, making it the most calcium rich vineyard soil in South Africa. The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness on 14 February 2014.

Cellar

After being harvested, the grapes underwent six days of a pre-fermentation cold soak at 14°C, before being inoculated with yeast. Daily pump-overs and regular tasting ensured that just the right amount of extraction took place. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was racked off to 225 litre French Oak Barrels (20% new wood) for a total of 9 months of maturation.

Ageing Potential

The Benguela Cove Pinot Noir 2014 has an ageing potential of five years from Vintage.

Pairing Suggestions

One does not want to pigeonhole this wine: Serve the Benguela Cove 2014 Pinot Noir with virtually any dish, but especially with lamb, Coq au vin, game and rabbit.
