Description:

This wine is as elegant as Pinotage can be! Rich and soft with spicy red fruits on the nose. Well balanced and rounded, it reveals juicy fruit on the palate, with soft tannins tempered by French oak ageing for 8 months. This wine is an easy drinking crowd-pleaser and the perfect match for a pork belly dish or barbecued meats.

More Details:

Extensive experience in working with the Pinotage grape, provided us with the knowledge to bring out the best in the varietal by relying on low yielding, old, untrellised bush vines. This approach seems to change a grape that is more beast than beauty into something extraordinary. We know that Pinotage will never be a sleek, suave international showstopper, but for us it is a proudly South African varietal that allures with an authentic, earthy flavour like no other grape. Our stunted plantings, reminiscent of twisted bonsai trees, seriously deliver on greatness - fruit so dense that it needs the tough love of open top fermenters to dispel the volatile esters. Since there is no Old World style to emulate, our journey with Pinotage thus far, has been quite an adventure.

The grapes for our False Bay Pinotage, stem from 30 year and older, unirrigated bush vines in the warmer Paarl region. What attracted us to these vineyards were the very small berries brimming with fruit concentration.
