The Brave Heart Pinot Noir proudly introduces itself with a bright ruby red colour enticing you to explore it further.  Fresh primary fruits, wafts of ripe red cherries and strawberries with a hint of bay leaf on the nose follow through onto a fruit driven palate.  Taste the succulent red cherries, juicy ripe strawberries, embellished by fine silky tannins imparted by the subtle use of French oak and spicy undertones typical of the Elgin region.

Cultivar: 100% Pinot Noir

Alcohol 12.3% vol

Residual sugar 1.8 g/l

Total acid 6.2 g/l

pH 3.39

The 2018 Paul Wallace Brave Heart Pinot Noir is our sixth vintage. The name is a tribute to William Wallace, a man of great principle and heart, who we would like to believe is one of our ancestors. It is also a play on the Pinot Noir cultivar’s nickname “the Heart Break grape”.  Fortunately, our 2018 Pinot Noir offering has once again captured our hearts and is anything but a disappointment.   Production was very limited – only 10 barrels / 2148 litres of this vintage were vinified.

Pristine grapes (Clone PN115, Guyot pruned) selected from two different slopes on our farm Wallovale Vineyards, were vinified with much love and gentle attention at the Almenkerk Wine Estate.

Whole berry fermented in open fermenters, basket pressed and taken to barrel where it completed malolactic fermentation. After 10 months on wood (20% new wood, 45% second fill, 35% third and fourth fill), the wine was prepared for bottling. Bottling date: 29th January 2019.

Food Pairing

Our Brave Heart Pinot Noir is so very versatile and will compliment a wide range of foods.  Too delicate to serve with a curry or very creamy dish but superb with plum-glazed duck, roast turkey, chicken dishes, mushroom risotto or a beautiful side of salmon.  It is recommended that in our hot summer months you serve this wine ever so slightly chilled.
