Chamonix, Pinot Noir Reserve, Franschhoek, 2014

The Reserve Pinot Noir is from the higher vineyards, at 500-600 metres of altitude and facing south-south west, so cooler. Fermented with a proportion of the stalks in open top concrete fermenters, as in Burgundy, and then into Allier oak, 60% new. This was the last vintage wholly overseen by Gottfrid Mocke and he really went out on a cracker, recognized by Decanter magazine - see below - as one of the 75 "most exciting wines of 2016".

Red fruits - almost fresh strawberry - with coffee and hint of mint on the nose; and then a much more intense, beautifully ripe attack of strawberry, raspberry and blackberry. All, perfectly in balance, this is silky and delicious. Now-2021

"A lighter style of Pinot, with classic ripe plum and sweet strawberry fruit but also a hint of vegetal allure. Excellent purity of crunchy fruit flavours and finishing with a savoury touch from well-integratd oak. A fantastic food wine. Drink 2017-2022", Decanter, January 2017
