La Vierge 'Vierge Noir'

Pinot Noir, 2010

South Africa Red

Hemel-En-Aarde Ridge 75cl

La Vierge is a new winery to me and we have several of their wines to taste. Funkily packaged it's a really attractve Pinot. From close to Hermanus this cool area is well known as being good Pinot country. Really quite pale in colour. Raspberry and strawberry on the nose with a touch of spice and smokey oak. It's young and bright on the palate with strawberry and raspberry, good acidity and plenty of fruit with oak and spice. Quite a light style but plenty of flavour, i really like it, no hint of iodine or meat, it's clean and fresh. For drinking over the next 2-3 years.
