Emma Martin, aged 11, has launched the 2012 vintage of a Pinot Noir at Creation Wines in South Africa’s Walker Bay region.
Created under the watchful eye of her father, Jean-Claude Martin, Emma has now become officially the fourth generation winemaker on her father’s side.
According to winetimes.co, the Pinot Noir was made with 15% whole-bunch fermented grapes and only 300 bottles have been produced.
