Vinification:

The grapes were sources from our own pristine vineyards and selected site in the Franschhoek Valley. After harvesting, cooling and sorting, the grapes were crushed to the red fermenters and a cold soak done @ 7 ° C for 3 days. After inoculation with yeast the punch downs started intensely for 4 days before pressing at 8 ºB. This ensures a supple and smooth Pinotage. The finished wine underwent MLF in barrel and tank and further maturation for 12 months on staves before blending and bottling. 


Winemaker’s notes: Abundant strawberry and ripe cherry flavours on the nose. A slight hint of chocolate, liquorice and coffee gives added complexity. The palate is smooth and soft, with berry fruit that linger and elegant tannin structure.
