    Terra Del Capo Pinot Grigio

    Pinot Grigio 2023

    Lime, peach and nectarine vivacity on the nose. That brightness continues on the palate with crisp nectarine, white peach and quince characters matched by lively balancing acidity. Light bodied and refreshing with a defined, dry finish. The fruit memory lingers.

    Light yet appealing subtle lemon leaf nuance to a bouquet of stonefruit and nectarine. Vivacious and lively palate which offers up vivid nectarine flavour along with a tangy yet crisp citrus element. Refreshing and succulent with good body and length. Perfect for balmy and hot summer days.

    Pinot Grigio 2021

    Appealing playful lightness of pear and nectarine on the nose. Tangy, light and zesty, the mouthful is fresh and succulent. Intense lemon zip accompanies pear drop and stone fruit vibrance. Lively, clean and crisp with a gentle lees suggestion. Lightweight and easy to enjoy. Pleasantly dry to the end.

    Pinot Grigio 2020

    This wine has a brilliant, diamond-bright attractive colour. Peach, nectarine and stone fruit with a light brush of dust on the nose. The palate is light, vibrant and succulent, packed with the same peach, nectarine and stone fruit flavours. Easy to drink with a subtle lemon zest vivacity and acidic freshness.

    Pinot Grigio 2019

    Expressive nectarine, elderflower and gentle citrus nose, gentle hint of melon too. Lively, fresh and bright palate, which expresses that lemony tang balanced by succulent stone fruit and nectarine. Crisp and refreshing, the body is light and perky with good acidity balancing the fruit notes. Appealing and vivacious with good length.

    Vintage Notes

    “A warm and dry winter preceded the 2023 harvest, with fairly even budding occurring slightly earlier than the previous year. The warm weather continued throughout the growing season, resulting in an overall lighter crop in most regions. Heavy rains in early December provided much relief and ensured that the vines were in good condition in time for harvest. For the most part of the season, conditions were ideal, and the fruit quality was exceptional. Rainfall that was unusually heavy and continuous in March posed some challenges for later-ripening regions and varietals. Overall, a fantastic vintage that promises to produce some outstanding wines.

    Winemaking

    Grapes were hand-picked and transported to the cellar, where they were whole-bunch pressed immediately to minimise colour extraction from this distinctively blue/grey grape. After settling overnight, the juice was racked and cold-fermented with selected yeast cultures. The wine was aged on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks before being blended and bottled with a selection of the best free-run parcels.

    Vintage Notes

    “Late, slow and steady” would be the best way to describe the 2022 vintage. The preceding winter was cold and wet, resulting in good dormancy and healthy dam levels prior to the growing season. The cool weather continued into Spring which in turn resulted in delayed but even bud break, flowering and fruit set. The moderate summer temperatures slowed the ripening period and resulted in harvest starting about two weeks later than normal. The usually hot month of February was uncharacteristically cool, allowing for the gradual ripening of fruit with good flavours and acidity. An exceptional vintage which promises to deliver outstanding wines.

    Vintage Notes

    “Late, slow and steady” would be the best way to describe the 2021 vintage. The preceding winter was cold and wet, resulting in good dormancy and healthy dam levels prior to the growing season. The cool weather continued into spring which in turn resulted in delayed but relatively even bud break, flowering and fruit set. The moderate summer temperatures slowed the ripening period and resulted in harvest starting about two weeks later than usual. The typically hot month of February was uncharacteristically cool, allowing for the gradual ripening of fruit with good flavour intensity and acidity. An exceptional vintage, which promises to deliver outstanding wines.

    Vintage Notes

    Good rainfall and favourable climatic conditions during the growing season allowed for good flowering and fruit set. Most vineyards saw a significant increase in yield, and the ripening period was nicely spread out due to the cool, moderate conditions during summer. Good healthy fruit with beautiful flavours and analyses make this 2020 vintage one of the most outstanding and enjoyable vintages in recent years.

    Vintage Notes

    The 2019 vintage was a very challenging one, mainly due to uneven ripening during the early stages of harvest. October 2018 experienced wet, cold, and unusually warm conditions, as well as strong winds that caused significant damage in certain vineyards. This led to poor set and the consequent uneven ripening of bunches. The conditions during January and February were very favourable, with cool nights and moderate daytime temperatures resulting in great fruit flavours and exceptional acids. Despite the slower start, the white and rosé harvest was intense and compact, ending 2 weeks earlier than the 2018 vintage.
