Wine tasting notes

Pinotage is probably the grape with the most potential for development and improvement in South Africa. If it is grown correctly and vinified correctly, it becomes an interesting wine with lots of depth and flavour. This wine offers raspberry and ripe peach and black cherry flavours with subtle oak nuances, a warm palate and delicate lingering finish.

Vinification notes

The grapes were crushed and allowed some cold maturation for 24 - 48 hours. It is inoculated with French yeast strains and allowed to ferment with regular punch downs for 8 days on the skin. The wine is then drained from the skins and further fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation is partially finished in the barrel (about 20% of the wine). The wine is then allowed to age in 100% French oak.
