Waterford Elgin Pinot Noir 2018

Waterford Elgin Pinot Noir 2018

This is the 10th vintage of our Elgin Pinot Noir. A pale colour, with floral and delicate wild cherry, elegant earthy and fynbos aromas which are complimented by maturation in old 300L burgundian French oak. This Pinot has a wonderful, elegant texture and flavour profile, all rounded off with a well-balanced natural acidity.

Pairs well with delicate food styles of turkey or pork garnished with cherries and earthy components.

When compared to previous vintages, the 2018 Pinot Noir vintage has a modern edge. The drought meant that the winemaking team had more control over the growth and ripening of the vineyards, helping them to produce a fresher wine. In step with previous vintages, the 2018 wine offers floral and wild cherry notes.

in the vineyard : Sourced from single vineyard in the higher-lying area of Elgin. Cooler climate with more slate, sandstone and quartz soil types which drives a more elegant style and textured wine.

in the cellar : Barrel ageing: 10 months, 3% new, 300L French Oak barrels
Bigger barrels, no new oak. The oldest barrel in the cellar is used for this wine, a barrel from 1998, Waterford Estates first vintage.
