The KC Pinot Noir displays the true essence of the varietal whilst keeping it light, fresh and accessible at any time. In order to do this, we have sourced grapes from two of the best Pinot Noir terroirs in the Western Cape; Elgin and Hemel & Aarde. Each bringing their own unique character to the wine - Elgin showing light red fruit and Hemel & Aarde the more serious rich and complex character.

Thereafter, the wine was aged on the fine lees for 9 months in a combination of 2nd and 3rd fill barrels and then blended, lightly filtered and bottled.

The grapes were fermented on the skins for a short period of time and pressed off before the end of alcoholic fermentation.
