This is always a big framed wine, built to last. Given 16 months in barrel, about 60% new oak, it's dense in youth, showing substantive black cherry, strawberry, vanilla and spice. Intense but generously ripe, with fine acidity and a backdone... Read More

Chamonix, Pinot Noir Reserve, Franschhoek, 2018

This is always a big framed wine, built to last. Given 16 months in barrel, about 60% new oak, it's dense in youth, showing substantive black cherry, strawberry, vanilla and spice.
