The Smuggler's Boot Pinot Noir, Elgin, 2016

Lot: 1063 Supplier: RICHARD KERSHAW WINES Country/Region: South Africa /Elgin Major Grape: Pinot Noir

Concentrated aromas of red cherries, wild strawberries, rose petal, pepper and wild herbs mingle together and complement one another. Smuggler's Boot Pinot Noir 2016 is supple and smooth with succulent sweet fruits. Light to medium bodied, it has a touch of rosemary bitterness and cherry menthol flavours which persist on the palate inviting another sip. Pinot Noir grapes were hand-picked, sorted and destemmed. After a second sorting table, grapes were placed in open top fermenters and left to soak. The wine was matured in 50% French oak barrels with 10% new, and 50% breathable plastic egg-shaped tanks for eleven months.
