Seven Springs Vineyards Pinot Noir 2011
By Christian Eedes, 6 October 2012
Seven Springs Vineyards is the property situated between Hermanus and Caledon of UK businessman Tim Pearson.
The maiden vintage Pinot Noir 2011 is immensely likeable – clean red fruit but also a touch of more savoury character, medium bodied and well balanced. The label carries the designation “Young Vines” and it shows – the wine could be a little more concentrated without sacrificing finesse but this should come with time.
Score: 15.5/20 and at R114 a bottle nobody can accuse Pearson of profiteering given how many dead ordinary examples of Pinot sell for much more.
