An outstanding vintage of this iconic South African wine. 2000 was a hot year and the reds from this vintage are powerful and concentrated, with high tannic structure, giving them great aging potential. This wine is now really developed, with earthy, forest-floor character and a delectable cassis-like, sweet-fruited core. A truly remarkable wine!

Seven Flags Pinot Noir is the ultimate expression of the Paul Cluver estate’s terroir. This is a very well defined wine with an alluring, luminous colour. The aroma has elegant red and dark fruit expression ending with lovely floral notes. All these follow through on the palate with some savoury notes as well, the palate has great length and complexity with freshness lifting the fruit.
