Mooiplaas Wine Estate  Watershed Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir () Barrel fermented/barrel matured/wooded (staves, chips or wood rice) 2021 and older


The Watershed takes pride of place as the highest vineyards on Mooiplaas, with a panoramic view of the Cape Peninsula and Table Mountain. At an altitude of 370m above sea level, cool southerly winds from the nearby Atlantic Ocean create ideal ripening conditions for grapes of exceptional quality. The Watershed Pinot Noir is made in the classical cold climate style. The wine is driven by intense fruit of red berries with perfectly integrated acidity and a good structure. The goal was to create a wine which shows elegance and complexity rather than a heavy, oak-dominated style. The wine should evolve well over time, with ample structure and concentration to age for 8 to 10 years.
