Thorne & Daughters Copper Pot Pinot Noir 2018
Delicious Pinot for an incredible price.
Sourced from a handful of vineyards in the Overberg region, where good soils (predominantly clay/shale and quartz/sandstone) and cool growing conditions combine to produce wonderful pinot noir that is both rich and perfumed. Minimal intervention, wild yeast, and 60 – 80% whole cluster fermented. 9 months in old French oak.
The wine shows aromas of bright red fruits and dried satsuma, with underlying herbal and cinnamon bark tones. In the mouth, it is finely balanced showing good acidity and fine tannins, these being balanced out by generous red fruit and citrus zest. The finish is satisfyingly dry with a touch of spice and earthiness.
