Sneeuwkrans Pinot noir presents with a perfumed floral nose, cherry blossom, ripe plum and raspberry aromatics. In typical Pinot Noir character, it displays approachability with complexity and subtle nuance, while remaining succulent and generous. There is a guile and mystery to this wine. Broad and laidback on entry, it offers bright red fruits but then also subtler, earthy, deep forest floor intensity. Silky, refined and pliable, with a powerful core and backbone from integrated oak. Poised and long rewarding.
The wine announces with an eye catching vigorous bubble. Typical yeast and cracker biscuit notes on the nose with lively citrus rind and a briny, maritime nuance is also apparent. The palate succeeds in being both refreshingly vibrant and simultaneously dry. Bright effervescence with creamy lees richness from its time in the bottle, with distinct brioche and sourdough toast notes vying with lively grapefruit and citrus flavours. Elegant, restrained, taut and thrilling, it’s beautifully poised yet equally flamboyant and exuberant! A gentle nutty note lingers on the long tail.
A mesmerising stream of fine bubbles can be found in the glass. Bold maritime breeze, brine and salt-laden sea air whiffs on the nose. Cream cracker and lemon zest too. The palate offers up big tangy citrus flavours with vibrant zest immediately noticeable. Clean, fresh and vital. A richer, creamier biscuit and lees element then comes to the fore, indicative of the complexity, refinement and layers of flavour. Harmonious, statuesque and beautifully structured, this wine has fantastic length and presence on the palate. Long farewell with a distinct lime marmalade on toast note.
Tempting aromas of dried lavender, violet and fynbos with tendrils of spice alongside ripe black cherry, plum and blueberry fruit. Those same blue and black fruit flavours are found on the focussed, complex palate. Simultaneously spicy and succulent but balanced with fine, dry tannin. Taut with good restraint. Very composed and sleek with grip and a delightful rich, earthy tail.
