Klein Constania

Pinot Noir 1998

Pinot Noir 1998

Grown on our coolest and highest South – facing vineyard which, is 300m above sea level underneath the Vlakkenberg Mountain. It loses the sun in the early afternoon.

NB: NEEDS CONFIRMATION FOR THE LABEL IT FALLS UNDER

Total plantings are ¾ hectare. Prone to baboon damage as it borders the Table Mountain Nature Reserve.

Tasting Notes

Elegant. Ripe cherry and truffle. A typically Pinot mouth-watering sweet / sour balance.

Maturation

Drink now but will improve with further bottle maturation

Barrel Aging

Matured for 1 year in Burgundy barrels, 50% of which were new. Natural yeast fermentation.
