2017 Cuvée Cinema Pinot Noir, Crystallum, Walker Bay

The 2017 Cuvée Cinema is a gorgeous Pinot Noir from one of the most talented young winemakers we’ve come across. Spicy yet floral, with excellent flavour definition, this is an incredibly impressive young wine. There’s volume yet weightlessness to the palate, with a silky, saline finish that lasts for minutes. Brilliant.

TASTING NOTES

Made with fruit from a remarkable, high-density vineyard on the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, this is a supremely elegant, nuanced expression of Pinot Noir, with pot pourri and rose petal scents, some pepper spice from 50% stems and a focused, refreshing finish. Brilliant winemaking.
