Variety

100% Pinotage

Style

A prime example of a South African Pinotage.

Vinification

Grapes used for the production of this wine originate from the Paardeberg and Swartland areas. The majority of the vineyards consist of bush-vines without irrigation. The grapes were picked at an optimum ripeness of 25 degrees Balling. Fermentation took place at 24 to 26 degrees Celsius, with daily pump-overs and punch-downs.

Maturation

After pressing, the wine was transferred to 300-litre French oak barrels. 30% in first-fill barrels for a period of 14-16 months and 70% in second-fill and third-fill barrels for the same period.

Characteristics

Proud example of South Africa’s Signature variety. This Pinotage displays a beautiful crimson colour with fruit-forward aromas of blackberry, ripe prunes and dates. Soft nuances of nutmeg and black pepper intertwine with juicy red fruit flavours, underlined by subtle spice, soft tannins and an elegant finish.
