Hemel en Aarde | A classically-styled Pinot Noir with herbaceous undertones on the palate, rich forest floor, fruity spice flavours and a savoury finish. Integrated oak tannins stand up well to the expressive and dark ripe red fruit. The wine is expected to develop more complexity and body over time and should be drinking well for the next eight years. Our vineyards are North-facing at an approximate altitude of 260m above sea-level. The vineyards are planted to three clones of Pinot Noir, 115, 777, and 113, and row spacing is largely uniform at 2,4m. The vines are strung conventionally with exposure to wind and sun, rather than leaf count, being sought. Cover crop and natural, organic fertilisers are used to balance the vines’ vigour. Irrigation is present but is only deployed to minimize vineyard stress during extreme heat.
