95pointsStorm 2015 Vrede Pinot Noir (Hemel-en-Aarde Valley)

#51 Enthusiast 100 2019
Return to List

There's an herbal edge right upfront on the nose of this wine, with some earthy foliage, raw cocoa nib and fresh-tilled dirt aromas that are amply supported by a fruity core of red cherry flesh, plum, wild strawberry and raspberry. The bright palate offers beautiful minerality, as pristine, pure red-fruit flavors are coupled with a saline burst on the midpalate and through the close. Fine tannins lend a subtle structure. It's well balanced, focused and precise, a gorgeous wine that is hard to resist now and should evolve well through 2028. Lauren Buzzeo
