David Finlayson at Edgebaston has created this fresh, fruit-driven Pinot Noir with a nod to the complexity of Burgundy. Wine critic Robert Parker gave this the thumbs up with 89/100 points. Ripe summer berry fruit intermingles with soft vanilla cream, ending with a rich, savoury finish and mineral structure. Try this with grilled lamb or a fruity tagine.

Buy this if...you love New World Pinot.


Ripe, fresh summer pudding fruit with a moreish, savoury finish. South African Pinot Noir just got exciting.

The Producer

Small in size but large in stature, Edgebaston consists of just 22 hectares of vines. David oversees all vineyard and winemaking activity, with a holistic and quality-driven approach. The estate uses only organic fertilisers in the vineyards and care is taken at every step of the winemaking process to ensure that all wines are produced in the most environmentally friendly manner. The wines are enticing, fresh and pure, with an underlying but unmistakable European influence. As you might have guessed, awards are ten-a-penny, with Edgebaston wines regularly receiving top points in South African wine bible, The Platter Guide and the winery a winner in The Wine Merchant Top 100 awards.

The Winemaker

Named after his mother’s birthplace, Edgebaston winery in Stellenbosch is the brainchild of David Finlayson who bought the original farm plot back in 2004. A third generation Cape winemaker whose grandfather Dr Maurice Finlayson started the family wine business at Hartenburg farm, David followed in his father Walter’s footsteps, qualifying at Elsenburg Agricultural College in Stellenbosch. Stints in Australia at Peter Lehmann Wines and in Bordeaux at the world renowned Château Margaux ensured a very well-rounded career path before returning to work with Walter at yet another stellar winery, Glen Carlou, in 1994.

The Region

The Edgebaston vineyards are planted on very deep, rich clay soils. This is unique to this particular part of Stellenbosch, which helps to produce wines with an excellent structure, classic style and very specific mineral character. A total of eleven varietals are grown on the estate, with both classic single varietal wines and ‘rockstar’ blends including The Pepper Pot Red and Berry Box White which offer a twist on the usual grape blends. Ever the experimenter, David’s recent project ‘Camino African’ involves cherry-picking specific plots and clonal selections for the release of two stunning wines – a Pinot Noir and Chenin Blanc – the culmination of his life and work in South Africa.

Absolutely Excellent

Lamb with Courgettes

We love this summery lamb recipe combining the delicate flavour of the chops with fresh veg and salty feta. The lamb needs a red wine, but stick to light, fragrant reds with smooth tannins and fresh fruit - South African Pinot Noir is ideal.

Mediterranean Wild Mushroom & Lentil Salad

An easy to prepare mid-week supper on its own or as a side dish with meat, this warm salad has plenty of gusty flavours which need a supple, silky red with soft tannins. We'd go for Edgebaston Pinot Noir, a little age has slightly softened the tannins and the fruit notes are still vibrant.

Creamy Cauliflower Cheese

Pair this rich, creamy veggie dish with fresh red wines or full-bodied whites which will cut through the cheesy sauce. It called for Edgebaston Pinot Noir, you won't be disappointed.
