93pointsAtaraxia 2015 Pinot Noir (Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge)

Lovely top notes of carnation, tilled earth, mentholated herbs, sweet oak and forest floor grace the brambly berry core of this wine. There's a lot to take in, with nuances of orange oil and sweet cured meat in the background. The medium-weight palate boasts a brightness and lightness to the midpalate, with fine yet structuring tannins and lingering notes of red cherry and plum skin. It's well balanced, earthy and lovely to drink now, though it will mature well through 2028. Lauren Buzzeo
