Pinot Noir 2019
Tesselaarsdal has a unique history, one that remains as important today as it ever has. This small village, 24km from Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, is named after Johannes Tesselaar, an East India Company settler. Upon his death in 1810, Tesselaar left the land he had acquired to the people he had enslaved. Berene Sauls is one of their direct descendants and was born in the village. After spending 15 years in the wine business at the highly esteemed Hamilton Russell, Sauls – with assistance from Anthony Hamilton Russell and his team – launched Tesselaarsdal Wines in honour of her family’s heritage. (If you look closely at the label you can see Berene and her grandmother crossing the hills in the background.) As a Black- and female-owned winery, Tesselaarsdal Wines represents refreshing diversity within the industry and the wines are out of this world…
Master of Wine Greg Sherwood is a highly respected voice when it comes to South African wine. In his words: “Of all the new start up wineries in South Africa over the past three or four years, one of my favourites has got to be Berene Saul’s Tesselaarsdal winery.” He has also praised their “five superb vintages of Pinot Noir.” And he’s not the only Master of Wine who loves them, Tim Atkin MW has previously described Berene Sauls’ Pinot Noir as “A Cape take on Chambolle-Musigny.”
Presenting wild strawberry, fresh raspberry, black cherry, dried flowers, smoke and spice, this Pinot Noir is fast becoming a new South African icon that gets better with every vintage. Don’t miss out, because it’s always snapped up quickly.
