"A standout vintage displaying rich generosity with layers of elegant complexity. A silky tannin structure, with elevated length, compliments the charming and spicy primary fruit perfume.
This elegant wine shows beautiful structure and balance -- a faithful depiction of the site’s lighter structured soils. 13% alc. 70 cases produced."
"90 pts ... 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 François 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. Best 2016-2026."
