Good Hope Pinot Noir, supple, approachable, sustainable South African Pinot Noir. The Pinot Noir from the Winery of Good Hope is an excellent value wine from South Africa, with supple sweet fruits, lovely texture and great freshness. We have to admit to being extremely surprised by this wine. We at Buon Vino are old world wine buffs at heart and tend to veer towards classic Burgundies for our Pinot Noir but…..well Burgundy is not cheap and so when we tasted this wine and saw the price, we were extremely pleased. If you like that sweet core of berry fruit at the heart of all good Pinot Noir and like the soft supple texture of the wine that grips without drying and softens without being flabby, then this little bottle from a sustainable vineyard in the Elgin is just the ticket.
