JH Meyer Pinot Noir NO So2

JH Meyer Pinot Noir NO So2

$32.99

This is an elegant, balanced and complex Pinot Noir given its rather ‘relaxed’ approach to winemaking. It has a nose full of
sweet cherries and red fruits with spices and savory herbs. The palate is bright with loads of acidity keeping the saturated
palate elevated. The finish is taught and gives energetic drive lingering to the next sip.

The goal of showcasing the terroir of the Cape South Coast through single-vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir took a 'little'
detour when Stompie and Anri purchased the land now known as 'Platteklip Vineyards' in Piket-bo-berg, Swartland. The
intense planting work done there shifted the focus of 'JH Meyer Signature Wines' to eventually becoming 'Platteklip
Vineyards.' In the meantime, Stompie will continue to put his deft hand (and hair) to work with Burgundy varieties across
the Cape. In 2019 he took all of the single vineyard sites and produced two blends and one single-vineyard wine. The
'Cuvée No SO2' is an amalgamation of organically farmed Palmiet (Elgin), Elandsrivier (Elandskloof) & Kleinrivier (Hemel-en-
Aarde Ridge) sites.

The fruit was hand picked at optimum sugar levels with Stompie keeping a keen eye on the pH levels being his more
important 'number.' The grapes were fermented entirely whole-cluster and crushed by hand with a single daily punchdown.
The wine fermented for 10 days and spent another 22 days post-fermentation on skins for further tannin integration. The
wine was then gently pressed with only the free run juice along with gross lees into old French 20hL foudre where the wine
aged for 11 months. It was blended and bottled in April, 2020 with nothing added nor removed.
