Goose. Need we say more? Oh all right then. Pinot Noir and goose. The Ur gastronomic combo of the festive season, the quintessence of Christmas. Jessica Saurwein’s Nom Pinot grows more assured with every new vintage. Cotes de Nuits in style, from the mighty Kaaimansgaat vineyard in Elandskloof, this is from the fiendishly dry 2017 vintage, which has given this wonderfully complex pinot intense aromatics, hints of orange rind, concentrated red berry and plum fruit, and a lick of wood spice. Gorgeous on its own, nigh-on transcendent with a crispy-skinned goose and cranberry sauce.

Press Note:

Neal Martin, The 2017 Nom Pinot Noir comes from vines planted in 2008. It was aged in 25-30% new oak and the rest in second-fill. There is 10% whole bunch here, slightly less than previous vintages. It has a clean, pure bouquet of morello cherry, raspberry and emerging hints of rose petal. The palate is well balanced with fine-grained tannin, nice edginess, sappy red berry fruit and a saline finish that lingers nicely. This is a superb follow-up to the 2016. Around 2,000 bottles made - buy one.
