Pinot Noir 2019 Tesselaarsdal
Pale ruby with a slight watery edge, the 2019 Pinot Noir offers aromas of wild strawberry with tones of tart cherry, cranberry and a soft herbal note, similar to laurel and sage. Medium-bodied and with 13% alcohol, the wine is bright with mouthwatering acidity and flavors of red cherry skin, rhubarb and subtle oak spices that present themselves along with a delicate, underlying herbaceous character. It ends with a lingering finish. The wine was raised in 228-liter French oak barrels for almost 10 months before being bottled. 3,924 bottles produced.

Galloni: The 2019 Pinot Noir Tesselaarsdal, which contains 10% whole bunch, has a straightforward bouquet of red cherry, raspberry and light menthol notes. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and flavors of tart red cherry mixed with raspberry preserves, leading to a precise and very elegant finish. Excellent.
