Cape Chamonix, Pinot Noir Reserve

South Africa | 2016

£25 a bottle

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.

Producer

Cape Chamonix Wine Farm has a long history, once forming part of the historic Huguenot Estate which dates back to 1688. Now under the expertise of German-born entrepreneur Chris Hellinger, over the past two decades Chamonix has stormed onto the world stage as a well respected winery in its own right. The farm employs a number of sustainable practices, including the use of organic compost and mulch which is ploughed into the soil.
