Tete De Cuvee 2013

Tete De Cuvee 2013

Quick Overview

Our Tête de Cuvée label represents a selection of our top Pinot Noir barrels from a particular vintage. This is our winemakers’ opportunity to showcase the very best of our unique terroir. Pinot Noir displays both a delicacy and richness and is often quoted as a varietal with a character of its own, expressing the terroir upon which it is grown. The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley represents that unique combination of soil and climate that exists in only a handful of places, where balance provides the perfect expression of this elusive grape.

This is very much a fruits of the forest wine where the colour is deep and the body is firm and bold. Delicious raspberry, quince and blackberry flavours add to the nutty tones offered by the generous complement of new wood. Rich and long on the back palate, this wine has a solid structure and long harmonious layers of velvety tannins, promising rewarding years of complex development.
Tête de Cuvée is the ideal companion to a Sunday lunch or special occasion. Required to be taken seriously, it pairs beautifully with red meats, Coq au Vin, truffle dishes, game and cheese.
