Mariëtte Pinot blanc 2020

Mariëtte Pinot blanc 2020
Mariëtte Pinot blanc 2020
A pale straw colour with a bright golden tinge. Soft fig and tropical fruit aromas such as melon and pear on the nose, as well as a lightly wooded elegance with undertones of almonds and nuttiness. The palate is loaded with stone fruit, dried apricot and a hint of ripe lemons, which culminate in a crisp acidity and long finish. A truly well balanced beauty that makes this a winemakers’ selection.

Other Interesting Fact
Pinot blanc and Pinot Gris are both natural genetic mutations from Pinot noir which is genetically unstable. In this specific block the Pinot blanc and Pinot Gris grapes are mixed, and we only picked the white grapes for this rare and unusual wine. The vines are 31 years old in 2018 and only enough grapes are available to make 6 barrels of wine. This is a single vineyard wine, but we cannot certify it like that because the Pinot blanc is mixed with the Pinot Gris in this block. Rootstock is Richter 99. Vineyard is located on Le Belle Rebelle estate, Breedekloof.

FoodSuggest Being such an interesting wine with out of the ordinary flavours this wine will be a chefs’ dream pairing. Thai green curry, rich matured cheeses with figs and nuts will suit the almond, nutty aftertaste. Full flavoured seafood dishes like paella, creamy mussels or kingklip will be irresistible combinations.
