Norah’s Valley Red and White Mixed Box
Tasting notes compiled by Michael Oliver food and wine commentator and life time achievement award winner for Eat Out.
Norah’s Valley Velvet Red 2018 is a de-alcoholised wine made from the Pinotage grape in the Nuy Wine of Origin Appellation. The alcohol is removed from the finished wine by using technology where the wine is put through a spinning cone which sends the wine through different membranes at high revolution, removing the alcohol with no additions and chemical free.
Norah’s Valley Silk White 2020 is a premium de-alcoholised wine made of the finest Sauvignon Blanc grapes from the Western Cape Wine of Origin Appellation. Less than 0.5% alcohol, low in sugar and officially dry. The Norah’s Valley Silk White is low in calories, and the result is a crisp delicate bodied wine.
Wine of Origin – Nuy
Composition – 100% Pinotage 2018 (Velvet Red) , 100% Sauvignon Blac (Silk White)
Maturation – 6 months in second fill French Oak Barrels (Velvet Red)
In the cellar
The grapes were brought to the cellar and destalked and crushed. A period of 3 days of cold maceration took place before fermentation. Maximum colour, aroma, flavour and soft juicy tannins were extracted by punch downs every three hours for the first three days, then 3 times a day. The fermentation was followed by maturation in French Oak Barrels.
Velvet Red is elegantly labelled in a Burgundy shaped bottle, closed with a screw cap. In the glass, the wine is a translucent dark cherry red. The aromas are bright fruit, cherry, mulberry and roadside brambles. The palate is delicate, though generous. The oak is there in undertow to support the fruit. Well balanced and harmonious in the waning aftertaste.
Silk White is elegantly labelled in a leaf coloured bottle, closed with a screw cap. In the glass, the wine is a pale golden straw. The aromas are bright fruited, desiccated pineapple and mango. The palate is delicate and generous with the pineapple repeated, winter melon, mango and an undertow of sweet tropical limes. Well balanced and harmonious in the waning aftertaste.
The Norah’s valley Velvet Red is an excellent food partner. Serving it lightly chilled will enhance your experience. Seared Tuna with a good dipping sauce, Carpaccio of Beef and Gammon with a sweet-sour cherry sauce would all make great partners.
The Norah’s Valley Silk White is a great glass on its own, as a mid-morning refresher, as an aperitif, and is an excellent food partner. Serve chilled at between 7°C and 10°C. Crisp summery salads, chicken, fish and seafood, or goat cheese all make great partners.
