Thorne & Daughters Copper Pot Pinot Noir
A fine example of the superb quality Pinot Noir coming out of South Africa, especially from the coastal regions such as Overberg where this wine's fruit is sourced from. Here, the cooling effect of the Atlantic provides for ideal conditions for Pinot. As such, the Copper Pot shows aromas of bright pomegranate, hibiscus and raspberry coulis, with underlying notes of pine needle and wild herbs. In the mouth it is finely balanced showing an integrated acidity and fine tannins, these being balanced out by generous red fruit and fennel freshness. The finish is satisfyingly dry with a touch of nutmeg and earthiness.
Originally produced for the hotel owned by the winemakers' family, this became so popular that they had to release it to the world! For those of you who have a history with the great wines of Thorne & Daughters, you will note that the label is not quite consistent with the rest in their line-up - as it remains, at heart, the family's wine for their hotel guests, the hotel's label remains.
