Tasting Notes

I tried this from barrel in the cellar a couple of years ago.  I got butterflies in my tummy. There was something gorgeous about it; like I’d never had before from a South African Pinot Noir, with an aroma I associate with grand Pinot Noir, not just good Pinot Noir. There was something noble about the terroir coming through, with aromas and a texture that coalesced. It tastes and feels complete, with a sense of luxury; the flavours and texture have melded to make a beautiful, moreish wine experience. Perhaps a bit like a full-bodied ripe Gevrey-Chambertin or Clos Vougeot.

More Info

 We’ve been working with Craig and Anne for 5 years now, and from the start fully expected their Cabernets and Chardonnays to achieve cult status. And so they have, and their Pinot's jolly good too. Demand is always high and volumes are very low. Restless River’s Chardonnay vineyards are some of the oldest the cool-climate Hemel-en-Aarde valley. Tiny yields and looong, slow maturation produces some extraordinarily concentrated and gorgeous wines  


“This is one of my favourite Cape pinots of all time. Goodness knows what will happen when these vines mature, driving their roots deeper into the soil, and Craig has even more experience playing with his stellar fruit, but I would urge you to do all you can to taste this wine. ”
Matthew Jukes, Moneyweek
“The 2019 Le Luc comes from 1.2 hectares of Pinot Noir planted on granite soils in 2013 in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde. It has an aromatically pleasing bouquet of black cherries, mint and light potpourri scents, almost Volnay-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. A lilting Pinot Noir that delivers satisfying substance and grip on the finish. This is a very well crafted wine that will be difficult to resist in its youth”
