A taut, mineral Pinot Noir with a bright acidity, from the cool Cape region of Sondagskloof. You might not have heard of this region, but we predict you soon will, as it has the potential to produce beautifully elegant wines. 30% of this cuvee is fermented whole bunch adding fine tannins and structure to the wine, it's delicious now but has the structure to keep, if you can resist pulling the cork right away.

About Brunia

Brunia Wines is named after the Brunia Leavis flower found in the pristine fynbos shrubland which makes up a large part of Cold Mountain Farm estate. Winemaker Wade Sanders believes in sustainable practices that take into account the holistic health of the farm and is converting his vineyards to organics.

The area benefits from a cooling maritime influence and higher than average rainfall compared to Swartland and Stellenbosch, this combination plus the 300m elevation gives a long growing season giving wines with bright acidity, tension and age-ability. This is a young project worth watching.
