VINIFICATION: 

The grapes were sourced from a selected vineyard on our estate and also a 43-year-old vineyard in Piekenierskloof. We have been farming these special blocks differently for the past 8 years, and this wine is a culmination of those efforts. After harvesting, sorting and cooling, the grapes were crushed and a cold soak done for 4 days at 7 °C. After inoculation with a selected yeast strain, the punch downs started intensely for only 4 days before pressing at 8 ºB. This ensures a supple and smooth Pinotage. The finished wine underwent malolactic fermentation in the barrel and further maturation for 16 months before blending and bottling.

 WINEMAKERS NOTES: 

Intense brick red colour. Upfront fruit brings to mind ripe cherries and plums followed by sweet vanilla pods , liquorice and some cedar wood, all reflecting the cultivar. The palate is rich, soft and very elegant. A full-flavoured Pinotage that depicts the terroir and cultivar.

 MATURATION IN OAK: 

Of the barrels used, 50% were new and the rest 2nd and 3rd fill. We also use 5 % American Oak in this wine. 

FOOD PAIRING: 

The wine is ideal for Springbok loin Beef Wellington with a berry jus and glazed vegetables.
