Pinot Noir permeated the South African wine scene when it was first introduced in the latter half of the 20th century. This light bodied red wine is limited to selected wine farms and regions, primarily Elgin and Walker Bay, as it is a hard grape to grow properly. When Pinot Noir is perched proudly atop suitable terroir, it is a very rewarding grape and so too is the wine.
Our Myst Pinot Noir is the perfect representation of Harry Hartman, with floral notes complimented by aromas of cherries and strawberry jam, Myst is rounded off with a hint of honey. Versatility is one of Pinot Noir’s greatest attributes, being able to pair beautifully with a wide range of food, such as salmon, pork, chicken and so much more!

  6. Add lemon zest, grated garlic, lemon juice, thyme, rosemary and parsley to the vegetables.
  7. Cook the veg in a pan until a nice char has developed, but still with a crunch.

  15. Assemble the mash potatoes, charred vegetables and pork tenderloin on a place.
  16. Drizzle the macerated cherries in and around the protein, and vegetables, allowing the juices from the cherries to pattern their way around the dish. Top with chopped fresh mint.
  17. Enjoy while sipping a glass of Myst Pinot Noir!

Pinot Noir is a very adaptable wine, which lends it a wonderful authenticity when it comes to food pairings. For the best flavour pairings with Myst, skin-on chicken thighs, salmon fillets, and eggplant steaks, can be used as substitutions to suit your personal preference.
