Paul Cluver's Seven Flags Pinot Noir is a truly outstanding wine from this cool region of South Africa. It presents itself both body-rich, firm and spicy, as well as particularly complex. The bouquet shows black cherry and vanilla with a little chocolate. The palate is filled in a similar way to a burgundy, here you will find plenty of dense, ripe, soft tannin. A wine with impressive character and a lot of melting that goes with game dishes, mushrooms, trout with Beurre rouge and veal chops!
This brings Paul Cluver closer than ever to the perfect Pinot Noir. He enthuses: "A selection of vineyards and barrels that brings together all that our family believes in when it comes to winemaking. This wine is the highest expression of our terroir."
