Glen Carlou Pinot Noir 2015

R145.00

Our Pinot Noir has a smooth silky texture, followed by mild tannins that deliver structure and complexity. This is a generously fruit-driven wine with a great balance of harmony of acid and fruit.

 

Pinot Noir’s reputation as an ephemeral variety is under review. A combination of experience, technology and climate change has brought less winemaker’s heartbreak with this fastidious, thin-skinned variety. But when you get it right, many regard it as the most rewarding, yet haunting, red wine.
