Gottfried Mocke Wine Projects Pinot Noir 2017

Greg Ballington

@Delectable Wine this is the 2017 Gottfried Mocke Wine Projects Cape Winemakers Guild Pinot Noir.

Our first time every at the Cape Winemakers Guild Auction and we will make sure to come back! (Tasting was on 9/28/18).

Fifteenth wine at the Friday Auction Tasting for the Cape Winemakers Guild and the fourth red wine. This is made up of 100% Pinot Noir by Gottfried Mocke from the Kaaimansgat vineyard (Crocodile's Lair) in the Overberg region in the Western Cape. Aged for a total of fifteen months in 50% new oak barrels prior to bottling. Only 60 cases produced with 40 being auctioned in 2018.

Medium ruby red with garnet edges. Layered nose with an attack of leather, followed up by dark cherries and fresh twigs. Medium acidity (6/10) and well integrated with a medium body. Rich palate with complex layers of dark berries, spices, gravel and touch of twigs. Well refined and seems to have some good aging potential. Long finish. Drink till 2029.

$$ - Tasted at the Cape Winemakers Auction. Average bid at auction was R3,880.00 ($45.64 a bottle) a case. Highest bid was R4,800.00 ($56.46 a bottle) and lowest bid was R3,200.00 ($37.64 a bottle).
