2014 Pinot Noir, Mr P, Elgin, Iona, South Africa

The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine come from one of Iona’s small farms in the Elgin Valley, with a unique terroir. Here, diverse soils fanned by cooling ocean breezes ensure perfect conditions for slow ripening, allowing the grapes to develop their intense flavours, complexity and finesse. Mr P, is a “Pinot for the people”, showing all the characteristics of a classic, high quality Pinot Noir at an affordable price, making use of younger vines and older barrels with careful and dedicated wine making.

Elegant, fresh cherry and red berry nose with undergrowth melange; the palate is pure with a lovely texture and sweet cherry fruit dominates with spicy undertones. The wine is fresh and intense with real vibrancy.
