Cap Maritime 2018 Pinot Noir (Upper Hemel en Aarde Valley)

From winemaker Marc Kent, this wine opens with a beautifully concentrated bouquet, redolent of wild berries, black cherry and bramble from the start. Waves of forest floor, church incense and spicy fynbos undulate atop and lend a distinct earthy quality throughout. The palate is medium in weight, with medium-intense blue and black fruit tones partnered to a pronounced acidic lift that lends precision and focus. It finishes long and evolving, and the wine should mature well through 2027. Lauren Buzzeo
