2018 Ignis Pinot Noir, Storm Wines, Hemel-en-Aarde

Ignis Pinot Noir is from the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, and is 2km further inland, and 100m higher in elevation. Here the soil is totally different, with plenty of quartz, decomposed granite, and just enough clay to give a textured element. It’s the most perfumed, fragrant of Hannes’ wines. Blood orange on the nose, with dark cherries, and pomegranate seeds. There’s an intensity to the palate: this is very bright and energetic, but with richness to the core of fruit. The finish is chiselled, and there’s a breadth to the tannins. Very long and ferrous.
