Description

“Complex and layered delicate fruit flavours provide a delightful scope of cranberry, pomegranate and raspberry. Light floral notes are complemented by a touch of oak, enhancing the undemanding palate with a pleasant earthy almond character. Natural bright acidity and silky tannins round off an elegant and rather special wine” – Johnnie Calitz

Simonsberg-Paarl

In the Vineyard

There are 3 different vineyard blocks of Pinot Noir on our Glen
Carlou estate. The trellised vines are densely planted with more
than 5000 vines per hectare, comprising of the clone 113 and
115. The soil structure is primarily Glenrosa Shale with deeper
Clay soils. Small yet flavourful berries are harvested from low
yielding vines.

In the Cellar

Hand-picked and sorted, the grapes were fermented under cool
conditions in small open top stainless steel tanks. To retain the
natural texture of the fruit, minimal intervention in the cellar is
followed. Before final blending and bottling, the wine was
matured in 2nd fill 225 litre French oak barrels
