Saurwein ‘Om’ Pinot Noir 2020

R460.00

Grape origin: Place of the Gods Farm, Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, Walker Bay, Hermanus. This dryland vineyard is situated just 12 km from the sea and lies at 300 m above sea-level. The soils are granite origin with a significant portion of clay. The vineyard was planted in 2006.

Winemaking: Grapes are hand-picked, hand-sorted, grapes are cold-soaked, fermentation is spontaneous, post-fermentation maceration is complete when the tannins are optimal, minimum of 10 months in 228 litre French oak barrels (new and older).

Om symbolises the concept of universal creation. This word is also synonymous with peace.

Christian Eedes, Winemag: “A hint of flinty reduction before rose and red cherry. The palate has a smart linearity about it – lovely clarity of fruit, bright acidity, and crunchy tannins. Well-balanced and energetic.”

Steeped in the history of 17th-century winemaking, Jessica’s forefathers made “sour” wine for the Emperor of Austria. It became her vocation to redeem her family’s reputation in wine and so after a gap year working locally and internationally in vineyards, she completed a BSc Oenology and Viticulture degree at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. She started Saurwein part-time in 2015. When she had a baby in October 2017 she resigned from her job to become a mother and full-time winemaker for her own brand. Today she focusses on handcrafting her two favourite cultivars, Pinot noir and Riesling, and makes three wines under the Saurwein brand name, two Pinot noirs and one Riesling.
