We love this because...

A spot on rendition of cool climate Pinot Noir the 2015 Peter Max is brimming with juicy red cherry fruit and sweet spice all swept along on by refreshing acidity and elegant refined tannins. Delicious already for those with space and patience this will reward 3-5 years of cellaring.

The wine

Like his sibling Agnes, Peter Max is a multi-vineyard blend and in this case is comprised of fruit from four sites; three in Hemel-en-Aarde and one high-altitude site further inland. After harvest the fruit is transferred to tanks to ferment – in the case of the 2015 Peter Max, 30% of the grapes are fermented with their stems to add flavour, structure and complexity to the finished wine. Fermentation is slow and gentle with extraction kept to a minimum and the wine spending a total of four weeks on the skins before pressing and being transferred to barrel for aging for 10 months.

The 2016 Peter Max shows off the quality of this top class South African vintage with masses of sweet red cherry and raspberry fruit combining with sweet spice and cocoa notes from the oak aging. This flavour profile combines with elegant tannins and refreshing acidity to form a beautifully complete wine.
