We are delighted to offer Hannes Storm’s highly anticipated 2014 site-specific Pinot Noirs. These were once again the standout wines at January’s 2016 Pinot Noir Celebration, a showcase of all the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, Upper and Ridge Pinot Noirs. With a decade and a half of experience in the valley (previously as winemaker at Hamilton Russell Vineyards), Hannes aims to produce the finest Pinot Noir possible by focusing on the best suited sites for this challenging variety. If you have not tried these, you are missing out on South Africa’s benchmark Pinot Noirs!

This year we are able to offer the very limited Moya’s 2014. Wine Cellar is fortunate enough to have secured a few more of the miniscule 150 cases that were produced. Planted on lighter decomposed granitic soils in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, the Moya’s 2014 delights with its floral and delicate nature. This an extremely satisfying wine with a remarkably long and savoury finish.

The Vrede 2014, on the other hand, is produced from clay-rich Bokkeveld shale in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, and it shines with refinement, purity and structure. It was the top wine at our ‘SA’s Best vs Burgundy’ tasting in Cape Town last week.

Tasting Notes

Storm Moya’s Pinot Noir 2014 – R 415
The nose entices with pure dark cherry fruit and floral aromas. There is some evidence of oak, with spice and earthiness providing balance. The palate is fine with a charming richness and a long, savoury finish that keeps bringing you back for more. Immediately drinkable, but will mature over the next 3-5 years. – James Pietersen, Wine Cellar

Storm Vrede Pinot Noir 2014 – R 415
Initially a stony and iron-like nose, rather shy on fruit, but displaying delicate spice and dried red cherry notes. The palate follows with layered fruit, fine, structured tannins and a long, lingering end. The Vrede is all about the palate and needs 6 months to settle. Best from 2017 – 2022. – James Pietersen, Wine Cellar
