2018 Chamonix Feldspar Pinot Noir

Cape Chamonix


The Feldspar Pinot Noir has a bright red colour. The bouquet is complex with scents recalling wild berries, spice, sour cherries and violets. On the palate the wine shows a medium body with fruit flavours and elegant tannins, leading to a long finish.


The first 10% of the grapes are whole bunch selected by hand and fermented in Nomblot concrete fermenters where carbonic maceration takes place for 10 days on the skins. The remaining component is destemmed and fermented in open oak vats for 14 days. After malolactic fermentation the wine is matured for 16 months in 228ℓ s French oak barrels with 30% new wood.
