About this Item

Vrede Pinot Noir, 2013
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

After working 12 vintages in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley as winemaker at Hamilton Russell Vineyards, Hannes Storm discovered 2 tiny parcels of land with particularly exceptional terroirs and planted them with Pinot Noir in 2008. 2012 saw the maiden vintage being released and was produced from low-vigour, stony, clay-rich Bokkeveld (‘Buck Veld’) shale soil in the Valley ward. Hannes is now the only producer of Pinot Noir from each of the three appellations in the Hemel-en-Aarde and the Vrede is widely regarded as SA’s benchmark. Just 350 cases were produced, and it offers fine aging potential.

Critics Ratings

'Different site (Hemel-en-Aarde Valley single-vineyard), 30% new oak, make 13 (4.5*) sturdier than Moya but equally fine, complex. Meaty, peppery red fruit aromas, flavours. Characterful, with enlivening acidity & minerality, similar admirable focus to streamlined 12 ' – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2016, 4.5*

'100% 115 clone on clay, near Hamilton Russell. Planted first in 2008. Super charming with refined tannins and real edginess. Less obviously sweet than the Moyas. Great structure. Very grown-up. Very pure finish.’ – Jancis Robinson (September 2015), 17/20

'Features a solid core of lightly mulled cherry and blackberry fruit, with hints of black tea, singed cinnamon and sous-bois holding sway through the finish. Retains a perfumy, elegant feel... 350 cases made.’ – Wine Spectator (May 2016), 92/100
