Black Label Pinot Noir
What people say
This wine fascinated me and was the standout. Brilliant red fruit, baking spice with slight savoury notes contradicted a modest cotton candy detail wonderfully. Polished tannins, restraint and a great power and depth is delivered with superb equilibrium and intensity. Certainly a world-class Pinot Noir which like many incredible wines is rarer than hens teeth
Vibrant berry & cherry fruit deftly supported by oak. Concentrated but approachable, reined-in yet generous
Elegant & textured. Elgin fruit adds apple zip to creamy length. Vibrant, taut, with broad, long flavours.
Brooding 2019 packed with spicy forest fruits. Muscular yet lithe & pliable, with restrained power. Whole berries & bunches fermented, year in oak, 25% new French. Beautifully framed & layered, yet delectably drinkable.
A fulsome bottle restrained by neither season nor occasion. A glorius Burgundian surprise!
The Brew Cru would be a $90 -$120 bottle of wine if it said Burgundy on it. It would be worth your while to create an opportunity to taste the wines from Brew Cru. These wines are truly impressive and incredibly complex.
Why Brew cru
We are friends first and foremost. We are serious about quality wine though, but do not necessarily take ourselves that serious. “Brew cru” is a double-barrel pun we suppose…”Brew” may mean “fermentation” (converting grape juice into wine, literally), which sounds exactly like the Afrikaans slang “Bru” – a loving, abbreviated form of “brother” or “broer” (Afrikaans) which basically is a “really good friend”. As for “cru” – may be a vintage (French), or even a special vintage. It also sounds exactly like “crew”, which is what we are – a team living and loving wine!
Both our Elgin and Walker Bay vineyards share a common theme in that they are grown in extreme conditions as far as ideal textbook viticulture goes.
These hardened landscapes with constant gusts of Atlantic Sea wind contribute to a cooler climate and it is these same persistent cooling winds that aid in disease prevention by keeping the grapes dry, allowing for extended ripening periods and consequently keeping the yields low resulting in to small, intensely flavoured berries with great winemaking potential.
