Baleia Pinot Noir

A Pinot Noir with a bouquet of ripe strawberry, cedar leaf and cyprus with a palate of sour cherry and floral turkish delight. Matured for 10 months in French oak. Elegant white meat dishes and warm salads pair well with this wine. Serve slightly chilled. 

Baleia’s food-driven wines present a delicate sensation of minerality which is expressed by natural salts found in the soils and prepares the palate beautifully.


When showcasing this wine amongst some of the top winemakers in South Africa, a comment emerging
from the discussion: Baleia will have to re-write the Pinot Noir book with that terroir. Working with such
extreme minerality, wind and hard, limestone rich soils require a refined approach. This is a journey of
discovery for us.


Baleia believes that living soils = strong roots = healthy vines = perfectly ripened fruit. We believe that through science and meticulous farming with attention to the details, we can produce grapes that truly reflect the terroir in which they are grown.

Grown in pure limestone soil with extremely high mineral content, which results in a lively wine layered
with fine structure.


The 2022 Vintage was characterised by heavy winter rains and a wet Spring which resulted in optimum
reserve build up. A drier flowering and ripening period ensured for a decent crop size.

Established in 2009 by the Joubert family, their winemaking style is inspired by the Mediterranean climate. Their ethos is to create wines that reflect the unique terroir and elements of their remarkable location. In fact, Baleia is the only winery on the Lower Duiwenhoksrivier in Vermaaklikheid in the southern coastal area of the Cape. Baleia is Portuguese for whale and the striking labels are inspired by St. Sebastien Bay, the Whale Nursery of South Africa.

Discover a place of whales and wonder, where wines are born from rocky limestone soil in a remote and
unspoilt corner of the Cape South Coast. Here vines overcome fierce elements to create fruit with singular
character and depth of flavour. Beyond evocative wine, Baleia is also about finding harmony between self,
others and nature in pursuit of life’s perfect equilibrium
