Stand Alone Pinot Noir 2021
Lithe, pliant yet powerful. Solid core of lively red fruit vies with deeper, inky nuance. Made form grapes sourced in the Hemel en Aarde Ridge. A small production Stand Alone wine.
In 2014 Alexander Grier released his first Pinot Noir from the Hemel en Aarde under the Stand Alone label. The inspiration for the name came from a very old tree standing all alone on the banks of the river running past our family property at Standford. Xander (and his Stand Alone brand) joined Villiera in 2018.
Origin: Upper Hemel-en-Aarde
