Spioenkop ‘1900 M. Gandhi’ Pinot Noir 2017

R215.00

When talking to Koen about his Pinot Noir, you get the feeling that he will be working to make a ‘great’ Pinot Noir until the day he dies. On the farm he has three vineyards of Pinot Noir, each named after a key person at the Battle of Spioenkop in the Second Anglo-Boer War. This wine (named after Mahatma Gandhi who was a stretcher-bearer) shows savoury red fruit with spicy tannin from the koffieklip soil. Earthy mushroom and slight smoke make this Pinot Noir distinct. Tim Atkin 93pt

Belgian native Koen farms a hilltop in the middle of Elgin WO he planted to vines in the early 2000s. A qualified engineer and former sommelier, he has a very clear vision for what he wants to achieve. His wines reflect his European heritage while still reflecting the terroir of Spioenkop. The two new single-site Chenin Blancs are particularly interesting – the ‘Sarah Raal’ is from ferricrete soils and the ‘Johanna Brandt’ is from shale. Brilliant, fine examples of cooler-climate South African Chenin Blanc. Both the Riesling and Pinotage wines are among the best in South Africa.
