Crafted from the fruit of some of South Africa’s oldest Pinotage vines, this benchmark bottling is a true Cape classic! Alluringly complex and distinctive, it boasts juicy layers of red and black berries, cassis and plum intertwined with hints of banana and mocha with a smoky, minerally undercurrent.
The grapes were hand harvested and hand sorted. They were then fermented in open-top concrete vats over a period of three days, with manual punch downs of the cap every two hours around the clock. When fermentation was complete, the wine was run to 225 liter French oak barrels (75% new, 25% second fill) for malolactic fermentation and aging. It was aged in barrel for 15 months and bottled without fining or filtration.
