Chilled this ready to drink with my Sunday roast chicken but not too confident it’s going to last long enough to go with dinner. Going perfectly with a warm sunny autumn day. Light and delicate but with enough bite to ensure you don’t just drink it and forget about it.
One of my favourite South African Pinot Noirs. Smells like the southern peninsula sea air, tastes smoother than an Olympia Cafe coffee but with a bit of the southern rough that you want in a Pinot Noir.

My love hate Pinot noir relationship continues to veer towards love. Soft and delicate with balls.

Insipid and vinegary. Price is the only thing going for it.
