Pinot Noir Reserve, Cape Chamonix

South Africa, Franschhoek

The Chamonix Pinot Noir Reserve shows a ruby red colour, with notes of cherry, wild red berries, crushed black pepper 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.”

Origin

Franschhoek is a near neighbour of Stellenbosch and as highly regarded for its defined and refined wines. Cool breezes in the hot summer months moderate growing conditions to produce ripe but balanced red and white wines. Chamonix is now one of Platter’s (“South Africa’s Parker”) regular 5 star award winners.

Grape Variety

100% Pinot Noir

Grapes are destemmed but not crushed and the must fermented in wooden and concrete vats with spontaneous yeast at a maximum temperature of 30° C for no more than 18 days on the skins, with frequent punchdowns of the cap. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally and the wine is matured for 15-16 months in 228l French Allier barriques, with approximately 50% new oak.

Alcohol Percentage
