Tasting Notes
The 2008 Pinotage has a deep purple colour with scarlet tint. Aromas of black and red berries backed by oak, spicy undertones of cinnamon and cloves giving way to a rich, mouth-filling palate supported by a well integrated concentration of tannin and oak.
Blend Information
100% Pinotage
In The Vineyard
Grapes picked from vines located in the Klein River district.
About The Harvest
Hand picked in small lug boxes.
In The Cellar
Grapes were sorted before inoculated with a pure yeast culture, BM 45. 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.
