Enjoy the latest vintage from  Benguela Cove Wine Estate at the launch of its Pinot Noir 2014 at Benguela Brasserie & Restaurant.

Visitors can sample the Pinot Noir 2014 in the first flush of youth, which promises to turn voluptuous as it ages, say the estate’s winemakers. A medium-bodied wine, it already exhibits grace and power. 

The unique profile of wines from the estate results from the special growing conditions at Benguela Cove, on the shores of the Botriver Lagoon, at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.  The south-easterly sea breeze is chilled by the Benguela Current flowing up from Antarctica. This cools the grapes at night, after warm summer days, so the grapes ripen slowly, irrigated by above-average rainfall, for superior viniculture.

The tasting notes describe the cherry and bright red berry fruits that form the backbone of the Pinot Noir 2014, whilst hints of spice and forest floor can be detected. The palate shows a suave elegance, neatly framed by polished, grainy tannins. Good balance and graceful poise are amply exhibited. For food pairing, serve it with virtually any dish but especially with lamb, Coq au vin, game and rabbit.

Visitors can enjoy wine per glass, try our delicious chocolate and wine pairing and select from Benguela Brasserie’s extensive menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
