At Storm Wines our intention is to create balanced wines that have poise and elegance with underlying structure. This wine “speaks of purity” with a linear and fruit focus with violets and rose petals on the nose. Special toasting was added to the French oak barrels. There is 25% new oak and the perfume is in the background. The wine is a dark plum colour, no yeast was added and is unfiltered. The wine is well balanced and fruit driven with a chalky end. We aim to create those wines that can be enjoyed with family, friends and great cuisine.

South African Pinot's are going from strength to strength and this had a perfect showing at one of our Premier Crew Panel Tastings earlier this year - caused quite a storm in fact... With its rich elegant core of sweet fruit and a wonderfully textured mid palate with a weight and purity to the finish that is neither heavy or jammy but vibrant, velvety and clean - its is a real crowd pleaser and effortlessly drinkable.

    Wow! full on big time Pinot Noir. I'll drink this with my lamb on the barbeque as soon as the weather's good enough.

Storm Wines

Hemel-en-Aarde



Hannes Storm earned his stripes at a top winemakers in the Western Cape, South Africa, but his passion for wine has led him to set up his own boutique winery Storm Wines, having found a couple of small vineyards in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Meticulous viticulture, minimal intervention in the cellar and a constant nod to the Old World present the wines with a warm personality and character. With the maiden vintage for both vineyards in 2012, Storm Wines continues to craft, perfect and guide the grapes from their unique terroirs into very distinctive site-specific wines. Standards have to be high as he’s competing with his brother Ernst, a winemaker in California.
