Grande Provence Pinot Noir – a sublime summer red

Treat yourself to the sun soaked flavours of Grande Provence Pinot Noir 2013 this summer. Served slightly chilled, this new release made from 100% Franschhoek grapes, teems with luscious red berry fruit making it an idyllic summer wine.

The aromas of strawberries and red cherries jump from the glass, while ripe berry fruit follows through onto an elegant, juicy palate to create a beautiful balance between the summery perfume and well integrated oak flavours of this velvety, soft wine.

“Provided your timing is perfect, Pinot Noir grapes cultivated in warmer climates will produce excellent, fruit forward wines. The grapes chosen for our Pinot Noir hail from one of the most sought after vineyards in the Franschhoek valley located high up on south-westerly facing slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains,” says Cellarmaster Karl Lambour who is especially pleased with the flavour profile of the Grande Provence Pinot Noir 2013.

“Pleasing a red wine lover in summer is nearly impossible, but this Pinot Noir will certainly do the trick. The best pairing for this wine is definitely seared salmon with a crisp summer salad,” recommends Karl.

The wine sells at R120 at the Grande Provence Tasting Room, and can also be found at leading wine shops and top-end restaurants. For added convenience, this wine can be purchased online from www.grandeprovence.co.za. Purchases of 12 bottles or more qualify for free delivery anywhere is South Africa.
