Peter Falke PF Blanc de Noirs 2016
This year the Peter Falke PF Blanc de Noirs 2016 is a single variety wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grown on the farm’s vineyards on the slopes of the Helderberg, one of the parts of the Stellenbosch Wine Appellation well known for its production of red grape varieties. The vineyards are cooled in the summer afternoons by breezes off False Bay.
Werner Schrenk, Estate GM & Winemaker
Made in the same way as Peter Falke’s white wines, careful bunch selection during harvest to be sure to remove damaged or sunburnt bunches and then berry sorting in the cellar to remove what wine people quaintly refer to as MOG – material other than grapes – leaves, stalks or vine parts. Once in the cellar the grapes are lightly pressed under gently pressure to avoid too much colour being extracted. The juice was then cold settled for two days and beautiful clear juice taken through to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. After this the wine was prepared for bottling.
It looks like
Bottled under cork in a Bordeaux shaped bottle with an enchanting pink label. In the glass it is a delicate cherry blossom pink.
It smells like
Red berries, ripe white fleshed nectarines. Freshness.
It tastes like
A chilled herbal infusion of red berries.
It tastes like
Fresh full round creamy berries. Eton Mess. Very refreshing.
