Moya Meaker, Pinot Noir 750ml 2019South Africa, Elgin
'Fresh bright and lively with a nose that is quite deep and intense. There is more fruit than on the previous with great depth and lots of spice, and some toasty oak. The overall impression is a denser wine, showing off oak spice co-mingling with red and black fruit. There is a nice balance of power and intensity yet a sense of refinement to end.’ – James Pietersen
'An immaculate bombardment of red and black fruit, a joyful vibrancy of fresh cherries, the coolness of newly budded roses and subtle hits of spiced black plum and white pepper, career along gracefully and evolve onto a palate shot through with blood orange zing. Deft and lightweight, underpinned by classic black cherry and just a hint of bitter chocolate. The tannin structure is lux and coated, and bends in harmony with the lemony acidy. Supreme balance and extraordinary length lend this wine to a smart dinner companion, or chilled down just slightly as a daytime refresher.' – Winemaker

About Moya Meaker:
Established in 2010 by Canadian-born David Curl, the former owner of Château Gaby in Bordeaux, and South African-born Genevieve Hamilton-Brown, this Elgin property lies in an amphitheatre formed by the Hottentots-Holland, Groenland and Kogelberg Mountains. The 3-ha parcel of ancient Bokkeveld shale soils offers the perfect terroir for cultivating this elusive Burgundian grape. At this high altitude, the vines are exposed to large diurnal shifts giving the Pinot Noir its bright acidity and lovely, plush fruit density. Produced from high-density plantings of Dijon 667 and 777 heritage clones, together with Jean’s deft winemaking, makes for a delicious, on-point Elgin Pinot at a great price.
