The Tête de Cuvée label presents a selection of our top Pinot Noir barrels from a particular vintage. This is our winemakers’ opportunity to showcase the very best of our unique terroir and their winemaking. Pinot Noir is unique as it displays both a delicacy and richness. It is often quoted as a varietal with a character of its own, expressing the terroir upon which it is grown. The Hemel- en-Aarde Valley represents that unique combination of soil and climate that exists in only a handful of places, where the exact balance provides the perfect expression of this elusive grape.
12 barrels were chosen for this cuvee. Matured for a total of 10 months with a compliment of 100% new oak. TASTING NOTES: core of blueberry, wild cherry and fresh fruit flavours. Finishes strongly with loads of ageing potential. FOOD PAIRING: Beautifully paired with red meats, truffle dishes, game and cheese. VEGAN.
