Cap Maritime Pinot Noir 2018
An elegant, refined style Pinot with great balance, layers of dark fruit, fine, integrated tannins and vivid structure.
Cap Maritime's Pinot Noir is a delicate, refined style with fine underlying minerality and cherry flavours to the fore. The 2017 vintage was excellent due to the long sunshine hours throughout the growing season and a high diurnal range, where the grapes were allowed respite through the cooler nights to bring freshness and vitality as well as maximum ripeness.
"Unmistakably Pinot Noir on the nose, the 2017 Le Cap Maritime Pinot Noir opens with classic elements of red cherry, oak spices and damp earth. The medium-bodied palate shows brown baking spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and potpourri that converge on bright red fruit expressions of raspberry, red cherry and strawberry. It has a pleasing structure of supporting acidity and ends with a spicy, yet slightly herbal finish that lingers with good intention."robertparker.com
