Seven Springs Vineyards
The wine is left to mature for 10 months in older French oak barrels.
The oak, as always, is subtle and understated, supporting the fruit driven profile of this wine.
Has a soft and supple palate and is medium bodied, with light and pure fruit characters. Garnet in colour, the wine offers opulent aromas of strawberries and dark cherries and hints of forest floor.
To enjoy it fully we suggest you decant the wine at least an hour before drinking and serve at 16-18˚C or as a light red for summer you can serve it at 10-12°C. It can be enjoyed with a variety of foods; such as a mushroom risotto, duck and game dishes or simply on its own.

Cape Town Insiders’ Review Of The Wine
The Hemel and Aarde Valley is well-known for the Pinot Noir that they produce. And while each farm has a distinctive style, the quality of the pinot is consistent. 7 Springs Pinot Noir is no exception, it is deliciously light and easy to drink, while determinedly serious with red berries and an oak influence. The tasting notes suggest pairing the wine with a mushroom risotto, duck and game dishes or simply on its own. We went for ‘simply on its own’ – it’s too special a wine to have food distract from it.
