2021 Pinot Noir Elgin

Grapes Pinot Noir
Colour Red
Origin South Africa, Elgin
Village Elgin
ABV 13%

Transparent garnet. Vegy nose but not to excess and really rather appetising sweet, but not superficial, fruit. Then light, dry tannins on the end. Nice! Such good balance I was tempted to swallow this. GV Drinking range: 2023 - 2028 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Oct 2023)

A charmingly ripe, red fruited Pinot from Elgin. Moya Meaker's five blocks of Pinot Noir are stretched across a single south-facing slope basking in the warm South African sun. Elegance is maintained from cooler summer days, bringing delicate floral notes to the soft fruit and subtle spice. A wonderfully silky texture surrounds a surprising depth and length. One to savour now or to develop over the coming years. L&S (Mar 2023)

So supple and elegant. Very fine with sweet red cherries and some lovely silkiness. Shows fine elegant red cherry and plum fruit with lovely purity and elegance and appealing floral cherry notes. Lightness, elegance and purity here. 95/100 (JG) Rating: 95 Jamie Goode, (Sep 2023)

Moya Meaker

Canadian businessman and former owner of Bordeaux’s Chateau Gaby, David Curl married South African born Genevieve Hamilton-Brown which ultimately led them to Elgin where they acquired a farm called Habibi, planted mainly to apples but also including small parcels of Pinot Noir and Shiraz, the resulting wines named after Genevieve’s late mother Moya Meaker, who was crowned Miss South Africa in 1959.
