Moya Meakers Wines

Moya Meakers Wines

Set in a striking amphitheatre formed by the Hottentots-Holland, Groenland and Kogelberg Mountains, the Moya Meaker vineyard – Dijon 667 and 777 heritage clones, planted at a higher density to encourage competition between the vines – is situated on an impressive ridge of ancient Bokkeveld shales. Combined with the cool ocean winds sweeping in off the nearby Atlantic Ocean, this high-altitude location leads to a large diurnal shift between daytime and night-time temperatures. The result? Pinot Noir with bright acidity and higher concentration.

The wine is named in honour of former beauty queen Moya Meaker – the mother of David’s South African-born wife, Genevieve Curl – and the Moya Meaker Pinot Noir shows precisely why Elgin’s terroir is ideally suited to this iconic Burgundian grape.
