From the mighty Kaaimansgat vineyard "well worth seeking out" The Wine Advocate

Just 3 barrels made - an exciting debut from Jessica Saurwein

Saurwein Nom Pinot Noir 2015




Nom stands for Nombulelo (gratitude in Xhosa) and Nomkhubulwane (a forgotten African goddess of agriculture.) Situated at 700m altitude, the vineyard is a place where gratitude is instilled and tales appear.
This is Jessica's first vintage and we are just so excited. Beautiful lavender, wild strawberry and slightly nutty nose with a kid-leather glove soft mouthfeel, forest floor, dark chocolate dipped orange rind and red fruits. Purity and prettiness for days.

And it's not just that are excited - so is Neal Martin of the Wine Advocate.

"This Pinot conveys a sense of brightness on the nose: bing cherries, strawberries, blood orange and a touch of vanilla. The palate is nicely balanced, quite Côte de Nuits in style with fine tannins and pretty red fruit on the finish. What it might lack in complexity it compensates with in terms of energy and harmony, two key elements of fine Pinot Noir. This is well worth seeking out, though just three barrels were produced. I look forward to more!"
