- 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.
