Pinotage 2020 – Case of 6



Tasting Notes:

Medium intense in colour. A perfumed nose of violets, blackberry and cedarwood. Opening further, the wine reveals sour cherry notes, a distinctive toffee character and spicy cinnamon. The palate is layered with cassis, ripe plums, and a solid tannin structure. A touch earthiness with a clear-cut acidity for freshness. The finish is concentrated and mouth coating. A touch awkward in its youth, maturity promises elegance and poise.

Suggested Food Pairing:

Seared Norwegian salmon with fondant potatoes, pan fried duck breast or your favourite cut of beef.


Winemaking Practice:

The grapes were harvested by hand on two different dates from a single vineyard neighbouring Kanu. Southeast facing, it benefits from the cool afternoon westerly breezes during ripening. The grapes were destemmed and lightly crushed and pumped to fermenter where it went cold maceration for 72 hours with gentle 2-hourly pump overs for colour extraction. A specific yeast was used for fermentation that brings red fruit and spice to the wine. Regular pump-overs during fermentation to ensure good colour and tannin extracts took place before being pressed after 14 – 20 days. The wine then underwent malolactic fermentation in French and American oak barrels. Maturation took place over a 22-month period in barrel. 26% of the barrels constituted American oak, adding sweet spice to the final blend.
