One of my favourite producers this wine continues to receive the accolades and deservedly so. As well as being South Africa’s wine bible (Platters Guide) wine of the year, it has now been heralded in the Decanter World Wine Awards 2012. Described as simply superb by Decanter!
The Chamonix Pinot Noir Reserve shows a ruby red colour, with notes of cherry, wild red berries, crushed black pepper, cinnamon and violets on the nose. Although firm in structure and intense in flavour, textures are mellow and round, expanding with time to extraordinary opulence and length on the palate. It should reach its prime in about 5-8 years after release.
REVIEWS & AWARDS
“Complex red fruit and sour cherry aromas with a savoury smokiness, forest floor and light creosote notes. Wonderful, earthy palate of lively, delicate strawberry and morello cherry fruit. Ethereal – hiding deceptive power and intensity. Superb!” – Fiona McDonald – Decanter World Wine Awards, 2012
