Cuvée Cinema Pinot Noir

Scenes from a movie based on the life of Napoleon were shot on the Cinema site the year before vineyards were introduced, which gave this wine its name. This Cuvée is a selection of barrels made from said single vineyard, a premium site in the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge that was meticulously designed to produce the highest quality Pinot Noir with the planting of high density vines using disease-free Dijon clones.

Latest release (2017)

A weighty and expertly integrated vintage showing tension and vibrancy. Concentrated raspberry and red cherry fruit with sweet cinnamon spice and a subtle salinity alongside firm tannins and strong acidity ensure this wine will drink well through 2025.

Vinification

Fermented using only native yeasts with a ratio of whole clusters (40%) to whole berries (60%) in a stainless steel tank. The total time in tank was 28 days. The wine was then transferred to barrel (30% new) where it remained for 11 months before bottling.
