- ABV 14%
- Closure: Stelvin
A relatively new and ambitious venture Rockcliffe employ the services of former West Cape Howe winemaker Coby Ladwig. They produce an impressive range of wines with this entry level Pinot being one of the standouts delivering amazing value.
A rich, seductive Pinot with a fullish textural feel and plenty of spice.
Aged in 100% French oak of which 40% was new and 60% old for a period of 10 months. Good depth displaying a dark red core with black tinged edges and a bright red hue. Perfumed aromas of violets intermingle with ripe dark cherries and plum which are overlaid by anise, toasty cedar and spice. The generous and powerful medium bodied palate is decked out with rich dark fruit flavours of cherries, plums and anise followed by toasty oak and a spicy finish. A solid, yet fine grained tannin structure providing some grip. Excellent length concluding with a long aftertaste of spicy dark cherries, dark plum, anise infusions and toasty cedar. Limited stocks.
Cellar 5-6 years.
Immediately appealing, the aromas of cherry jam, blue plums and a green/herbal scent jump from the glass. Bright and breezy flavours of youth will no doubt develop into something more complex with time, the light but firm astringency keeping the structure tight and trim. No issue with drinking now, and well worth a stint in the cellar. Drink by 2023.
