La Vierge Estate The Affair Pinot Noir 2018

HANSCORE: 19.5/25 

What a deal! This is better value than that time Hendrix gigged at the Newcastle Club-a-Gogo.
Like Hendrix, it’s not that pretty to look at (a slightly dull crimson), and there are some a few overly sweet glacé cherry notes on opening, but it’s quite lovely once settled in the glass. It’ll be hard to find a better value Walker Bay Pinot Noir. And if you do, please tell me!

👃🏼 Aromas carry strawberry sherbet, fennel, candied cherry and terracotta clay.

👄  Palate weight is med(-) weight, with cherry-flavoured boiled candy, rasberries, and white pepper spice on tail. Med(+) acid.
Tannins present themselves on the tail, lasting slightly longer than the fruit elements.

🔬 Hemel-en-Aarde fruit. Tank-fermented, and then matured in oak barrels for 9 months.

ZAR145.00 (as of October 2020)
