The Fledge Pinot Noir 2016

About the Wine


All fruit was hand harvested at dawn. Quite possibly the most tempestuous vintage in the Cape – super low winter rainfall, early spring, hot summer, heat waves & erratic weather – resulted in small clusters of fruit, great concentration & very typical lithe ‘n aromatic Pinot. The wine is multi-layered, slowly unfurling its complexities, exotic aromatics & showcasing the exceptional sites from which the fruit originates; deserving of accompaniment by fine rustic country fare - grilled duck breasts, braised lamb shoulder, beef Wellington, coq au vin or simply a sirloin on the braai; good company & much cheer. Decant in youth or cellar to experience its full potential in the next half decade or more to come.
