Prepare to be enchanted by the unexpected elegance and finesse of Mama Afrika’s Pinot Noir 2019. While South Africa’s high summer temperatures may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Pinot Noir, Mpelo and his team have harnessed the unique factors that mitigate the heat to create a truly exceptional wine.
Amidst the intensity of the climate, a remarkable balance is achieved, allowing the Pinot Noir grapes to slowly accumulate sugars and develop the potential for exquisite complexity and refined elegance. The result is a wine that defies expectations, showcasing a natural ripeness of fruit that resides gracefully within the realm of red fruits, avoiding the jammy or plummy characteristics often associated with warmer climates.
Hand-picked from a meticulously tended 3-hectare site, the grapes undergo a tightly controlled yield to ensure optimal concentration. The fermentation process is a labor of love, conducted with precision and patience to extract the tannic structure and reveal the intricate fruit flavors and aromas that define this wine.
Upon tasting, you’ll be greeted by a delicate oak spice richness that harmoniously intertwines with a vibrant profile of fresh strawberries, juicy raspberries, and the essence of cherry kernels. As the wine unfolds on your palate, a touch of tart blackberry adds an extra layer of complexity. The finish is adorned with a subtle hint of mint and rosemary, leaving a lasting impression of pure delight.
This vintage of Mama Afrika’s Pinot Noir has been meticulously crafted over three and a half years, maturing in barrel, tank, and bottle. The result is a wine that bursts with vibrancy, exuding a sense of effortless class that is truly captivating.
