Professional Wine Reviews for Storm Wines Moyas Pinot Noir 2013

Rated 90 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Pinot Noir Moya’s, which comes from the northern slope of the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, was cropped at 2.1 tons per hectare and is raised entirely in Francois Freres oak barrels, 30% of which are new. It has a more outgoing and complex bouquet compared to the 2013 Vrede, with raspberry coulis and wild strawberry scents, rose petals and tilled earth. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit and fleshy in the mouth with a slight savoriness developing towards the finish, with a pleasant bitter cherry edge. Very fine, though a paltry 70 cases exist.

Winery Storm Wines

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir translates as 'black pine' in French, and is named as such due to the extremely inky color of the fruits, which hang in bunches the shape of a pine cone. Wineries often struggle with Pinot Noir vines, as more than most red wine grape varietals, they fail in hot temperatures and are rather susceptible to various diseases which can be disastrous when hoping for a late harvest. Thanks to new technologies and methods for avoiding such problems, however, the Pinot Noir grape varietal has spread across the world to almost every major wine producing country. Why? Quite simply because this is considered to be one of the finest grape varietals one can cultivate, due to the fact that it can be used to produce a wide range of excellent wines full of interesting, fresh and fascinating flavors Their thin skins result in a fairly light-bodied wine, and the juices carry beautiful notes of summer fruits, currants and berries, and many, many more.

Country: South Africa

With its hot, long summers and oceanic winds from both the west and the east, South Africa is something of a haven for a wide range of imported grape varietals. Since the mid-18th century, the country has been associated with some very fine wines made using complex and careful blending techniques, with one of the most famous and widely loved early examples being constructed from Pontac, Muscadel and Chenin Blanc varietals. Since those colonial days, the regions around Cape Town have proven again and again to be fantastic areas for producing interesting and delicious wines, with many of the best examples of Champagne style sparkling wines originating from these fertile lands. From the scorchingly hot regions of Orange Rivers, to the far cooler and temperate appellations in Walker Bay, South Africa has developed a booming wine industry responsible for many of the finest New World wines available anywhere across the globe.
