Bouquet and Palate: The 2009 Pinotage has a intense, clean purple colour; aromas of red cherries with an explosion of spices backed by oak, bouquet well carry trough on the palate. A medium bodied wine with good balance between acidity and tannins.

About The Harvest
All grapes were hand picked.
In The Cellar
All grapes were sorted before a pure yeast culture, BM 45, was inoculated. 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 oak.
