Chamonix Greywacke Pinotage 2018

Product information "Chamonix Greywacke Pinotage 2018"
With its garnet red colour alone, the Chamonix Greywacke Pinotage will delight the connoisseur and pamper the senses with intense notes of red berries and cherries. Spicy aromas give the red wine, which has matured for 18 months in French oak, even more complexity and are complemented on the palate by dark chocolate. The elegant tannin structure and the long-lasting finish ensure that the Chamonix Greywacke Pinotage will be remembered for a long time. This red wine is best enjoyed with savoury dishes with dark meat or game. The Chamonix Greywacke Pinotage owes its name to the type of soil in the vineyard which supplied the grapes for this expressive red wine.

Chamonix – Traditional Wine Farm amidst Nature

The beginnings of the beautiful Cape Chamonix wine farm are traceable until the year 1688 when Huguenots purchased the estate. However, the current winemaker generation does not only look back on its past but always into the future which is why Chamonix is nowadays known for its numerously awarded wines, such as the Chamonix Chardonnay or the Chamonix Pinot Noir Reserve. The perfect location of the 50 hectares of vineyards plays a significant role in this development. They stretch to the eastern slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, surrounded by 300 hectares of natural beauty. A unique view of beautiful nature! Additionally to the awarded top wines, the winery also produces its own crystal clear mineral water which – in terms of quality – belongs to the best in the country and is therefore ideal to be enjoyed with wine.

The fact that the South African wine farm Chamonix has undergone such great improvements within the last two decades is mainly due to the acquisition by the German-born entrepreneur and passionate adventurer Chris Hellinger.
