STORM WINES IGNIS PINOT NOIR 2018
Storm Ignis Pinot Noir 2018
Ignis Pinot Noir hails from a northern slope in the Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Organically farmed, the vineyard is cluttered with round pebbles on the soil surface with underlying decomposed granite. Latin for “fire”, ignis refers to the fact that granite is an igneous rock formation – “from fire to stone”.
An elegant wine showing beautiful balance – a faithful depiction of the site’s decomposed granite soil.
