Moya Meaker’s five blocks of Pinot Noir are stretched across a single south-facing slope in the Elgin Valley. The densely-planted 3.12 hectares of vines were established in 2010; rooted in ancient Bokkeveld shale soils; rich in clay. All the grapes were destemmed and gravity fed to tulip-shaped Italian concrete vessels. This process prevented the crushing of berries so that whole berry fermentation was possible. To capture the elegance of the fruit, and avoid excessive extraction, the wine spent just 10 days on skins, with relatively short pump-overs twice per day. Malolactic conversion occurred spontaneously in a combination of 2,000-litre conical Austrian oak foudre and 300-litre Burgundian oak barrels, 25% of which were new. The wine was matured on its lees for 11 months. Bottled at 13% on 18 January 2022. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Opens with scents of dark roses, red and black cherries, wax crayons, and a feather-light sprinkling of spice.

Palate: Expansive and mouth coating, exploding with succulent cherries, wild black plums, and raspberries. The fruit concentration is refreshed by lively blood-orange acidity and has an almost airy quality. Cherry pip chewiness on the back palate bends to a fine-textured and silky body.

Finish: A long, smooth and refreshing finish.
