The Winery of Good Hope Reserve Pinot Noir 2019

The Winery of Good Hope Reserve Pinot Noir 2019

The grapes used in the production of Winery of Good Hope Reserve Pinot Noir come from two vineyards in Stanford and Stellenbosch, both consisting of Burgundian clones 115 and 777. The grapes were co-fermented using natural ferments. The winery made use of their hoist system which enabled them to lift the fruit into the tanks and use gravity to drop them in and carry out 100% whole berry fermentation of both clones. They employed gentle extraction, and the grapes were gently basket pressed for pure and fine tannins. The wine was then matured in stainless steel tanks for 8 months and then for 2 months in 228L barrels. As with all Winery of Good Hope wines, the wines were not filtered or fined.

This wine has depth and texture, presence, and poise. The whole berry ferment lifts the aromatic expression while bringing supple tannins and length to the wine. Dark, red fruit and a subtle earthiness can be detected. Gentle oaking and non-interventionist winemaking have contributed to producing a pure expression of South African Pinot Noir. This is not a Pinot for those who think good red wine needs to be black, oaky and tannic. It is a fragrant, bright and refreshing Pinot with wonderful succulence and expressive fruitiness. We recommend pairing with asparagus wrapped bacon, charcuterie boards, or any tender meat.
