Vintage 2014 will be remembered for the challenges it posed – significant rainfall during the ripening period, which played a pivotal role in the resulting wines. Our Pinot Noir vineyards were not exempt, and although alluring in its perfumed and silky expression, the wine didn’t reveal the hallmark structural density associated with our acclaimed Galpin Peak Pinot Noir label.
As a result, we decided to take this opportunity to present lovers of this demanding variety with a totally novel offering – a variation from the norm, not inferior, just different in texture and aromas. The 2014 Walker Bay Pinot Noir promises to deliver a uniquely rewarding drinking experience. Particularly charming, with pretty floral aromas – more strawberry than dark fruit, plenty of plum and spicy cherry notes enhanced through a careful selection of French Oak barrels
