Pinotage, David & Nadia, 75cl
David & Nadia is a family owned Swartland driven project, they focus on a spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas with different soil types throughout the Swartland, farmed by like-minded people. They are members of the Swartland Independent Producers. In the vineyard they aim for biological farming and in the cellar they work as natural as possible. It is all about the soil and vineyards after all. They believe in a pure, fresh and natural style where site and soil are at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view.
Pinot Noir pale in colour, and delicate on the nose – ever so slightly floral, ever so slightly bloody. Almost ethereal on the palate! Roses, pomegranate, sculpted by acidity and paper-fine crackling tannins. Almost Pinot Noir-like on the palate… Hauntingly beautiful. The most stunning Pinotage I have ever tasted in my life. Not in a million years would I have said, tasting this blind, that it was Pinotage. Hard to know how or if it will age, it's so untypical, but does it really matter? It's delicious now - JancisRobinson.com
