Grapes for the De Wetshof Estate Nature in Concert Pinot Noir 2017 are picked early morning, destemmed and cooled down before being moved to stainless steel tanks for a few days’ cold-soaking on the skins before fermentation starts. The wine ferments on the skins until dry and after racking and pressing, the young wines are moved into French oak barrels specially selected by Monsieur Christian Radoux. The wood is selected to enhance the Pinot Noir’s fresh fruity aromas and flavours through the process of malolactic fermentation. After malolactic fermentation the wines are moved from the lees into fresh barrels for further barrel-maturation of 12-15 months where after the wines are prepared for bottling. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose:  An intriguing bouquet. Welcomes you in with bright red fruits such as cherries and raspberries and subtle floral notes. Then opens up to reveal hints of earthy and savoury notes.

Palate:  Ripe red fruit on entry, strawberries and cherries. Mid-palate reveals more complex flavors of prunes, sweet spice and mushrooms.

Finish: Soft tannin structure, a very elegant wine. Lingering savoury notes on the finish.
