Le Luc Pinot Noir 2016
As the first release from Restless River’s young vineyard planted in 2013, only 1692 bottles of Le Luc Pinot Noir 2016 were produced. Our Wine Buyers are raving about this elegant red, which is more than a match for many in California and Burgundy. Although aged for 14 months in old oak, Le Luc is still crunchy and snappy, with crisp cranberry, cherry, black plum and wild strawberry sorbet flavours.
Interlaced, you’ll discover very Burgundian notes of dried herbs, brambles, red earth, sweet spice, leather and oak forests. It’s an exquisite piece of winemaking from a young yet extremely promising new site. We predict that in the future this is going to become one of South Africa’s most sought-after Pinot Noirs, so don’t miss out on its inaugural outing.
When Craig Wessels isn’t working for his animation and design agency or directing films, he and his wife Anne can be found making Restless River wines on their tiny farm in Hemel-en-Arde, located near the fishing village of Hermanus. They bought the only plot of land they could afford and have slowly transformed it into a 5-star rated winery in Platter’s guide. Armed with the coolest climate on the cape, self-taught confidence, tattoos, biker t-shirts, a couple of amphoras from Tuscany and a restless drive to experiment and learn, the Wessels family are producing come of South Africa’s most exciting wines.
