Tasting Notes
This wine has a nice dark colour and a typical Pinotage nose of banana and lots of Rooibos tea. It is full bodied, displays spice and pepper on the tongue, but is soft and smooth with a lingering aftertaste.
Ageing Potential
The fruit and wood flavours are well integrated, making it a ready to drink wine now but delicious in five years.
Blend Information
100% Pinotage
About The Harvest
All grapes were hand picked.
In The Cellar
The grapes were sorted before a pure yeast culture, BM 45, was inoculated. The juice was pumped over the skins 3-5 times per day for 5 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was drained of the primary lees and transferred to a resting tank. Malolactic fermentation and a brief settling period preceded the wine to a combination of 225 litre of French and Hungarian oak types.
