MENU's Wine of the Week. Quando Pinot Noir 2014

What a bargain this wine is; it is as good as any of the pricier and prize winning Pinot Noirs on the market. We bought this a while ago (2015) and it has really come into its own. Grown on weathered Karoo shale on the banks of the Breede River in Bonnievale. 
Silky soft and fragrant with raspberry and red cherry notes, wood is there but only as a support. On the palate it charms with its soft fruit, length and sophistication. Fanus Bruwer is a good winemaker who doesn't get enough recognition. R120 a bottle, current vintage is 2015
