David Finlayson Camino Africana Pinot Noir Reserve 2014

£36.45

This wine is made from Pinot Noir, clone 667, planted more than two decades ago on the Stellenbosch mountain as an experimental block. In my search for special and undiscovered sites and wines, I found the grapes and have followed their path into this fantastic example of what potential there truly exists for Pinot Noir in Stellenbosch when the right clone is fitted into the perfect site and terroir. A wine for maturation and enjoyment when the time is truly ripe for the reward. This wine signifies something truly special to me as a winemaker and is part of my journey in life and wine in South Africa , hence the name, Camino Africana, “The African Way”
