Cuvée Cinéma Pinot Noir

Scenes from a movie based on the life of Napoleon were shot on the Cinéma site the year before vineyards were introduced, which gave this wine its name. This Cuvée is a selection of barrels made from said single vineyard, a premium site in the Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge that was meticulously designed to produce the highest quality Pinot Noir with the planting of high density vines using disease-free Dijon clones.

Latest release (2021)

A wine that is once again all about balance, tension and focus. Wild strawberries and sour cherries lead the nose alongside the signature Indian spices, while liquorice and white truffle add a touch more earthiness to the palate. The tannins have a fresh, pomegranate-skin texture while a fresh line of acidity augurs well for ageing.


Fermented using only native yeasts with a ratio of whole clusters (60%) to whole berries (40%) in a stainless steel tank. The total time in tank was 31 days. The wine was then transferred to barrel (25% new) where it remained for 11 months before bottling.
