Producer Note
Ernst & Gouws is a family owned business in the heart of Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Synonymous with producing quality South African wines which are rich in heritage,
tradition and driven by a profound passion for wine and family values. In 1975 a
dapper and enthusiastic Ernst travelled to Europe, under his father's instructions not to
return to South Africa until he had mastered the art of winemaking. During his voyage
of discovery to France and Germany he missed his childhood sweetheart, Gwenda
and invited her to visit. After falling madly in love they decided to marry there and then.
Forty years later, three children and many Gouws grandchildren later, Ernst and
Gwenda still run the family business alongside their three children, Ezanne, Ernst Jnr
and Inke.

Vineyard
Ernst subscribes to the French philosophy that the quality of the grape is inextricably
linked to the "terroir", so he travels to various regions throughout the Western Cape and
handpicks his grapes in the areas where they naturally grow at their very best. The
Pinot Noir grapes are grown on the West Coast, just three miles from the sea, where the
vineyard overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The revitalising sea-breezes create balancing
freshness in the grapes, which is showcased in this beautifully composed Pinot Noir.


Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked at optimal maturity. Fermentation took place in stainless
steel tanks with gentle pump-overs extracting flavour, aromatics and tannins. The wine
went through malolactic fermentation in tank. The wine was matured for 18 months in a
selection of new and second fill French oak barrels. The wine was clarified by cross-flow
filtration.


Tasting Note
With layers of flavour, vibrant aromas of red cherry, dark chocolate and deep plum are
enlivened by a deft use of oak, imparting spicy notes of clove, cinnamon and spice.
