"A focused, racy style, with blood orange and mulled cherry flavors driving through, carried by mouthwatering acidity and backed by black tea and singed cinnamon notes. Drink now through 2019. 165 cases made." –JM

Product Description:

"Rockstar Pinot Noir. Winemaker Francois Haasbroek’s surname may translate in Afrikaans as “rabbit pants”, but his Pinot Noir is no laughing matter. Serious stuff, crafted using grapes sourced from three young sites in the über-trendy Elgin area, fermented roughly one-third whole bunch and spending three weeks on skins. It is aged in seasoned oak, unfiltered and ridiculously rare as he made less than 2,000 bottles. This is such a rockstar Pinot Noir that if you left it on its own in a hotel room, you’d come back to find it in bed with six Chardonnays, the TV out the window, the sprinklers going off and an empty minibar." -- Winery
