2021 Kara-Tara Pinot Noir Western Cape
Winemaker Notes:Kara-Tara is the personal project of Rudger van Wyk, the brilliantly talented young winemaker at Stark-Conde. Made from a combination of Elgin, Durbanville and Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge fruit, it’s an appealing, medium weight Pinot Noir with redcurrant and pomegranate flavors and some texture and spice from 15% whole bunches. "For this Pinot Noir, I have combined grapes from three distinct cool-climate vineyards in the Western Cape. WesternCape is a designation not often used for fine wine but I feel that bringing diverse components together can increase complexity if done properly."
Grapes are sourced from carefully-selected premium vineyards in the Elgin region. An elegant, lightly-wooded style of Pinot Noir showing classic strawberry and red cherry notes coupled with a hint of spice. A firm, yet silky-smooth tannin-structure supports the lovely bright fruit characteristics of the wine.
