Vinification

2015 was one of the best vintages we have had in South Africa. Early, ripe
and cool with beautiful berry set. A classic vintage.

Tasting Notes

Rich, ripe and vibrant red and black currants, spice and plumbs. A classic
example of South Africa’s very own grape varietal.

Grape Variety

100% Pinotage

Vineyards

Dryland bush vines were selected to provide complexity, concentration and
intensity.

Cellar Notes

This is a style is made to be consumed within the first 8 years however with
careful temperature control, only your patience will determine how long it will
last.

Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked and sorted then crushed and fermented in open
top, stainless steel tanks. Manual punch downs were conducted (of the skins)
to ensure a fine tannin and colour extraction. After fermentation, the wine
was pressed and half stored in stainless steel tanks and the other half in older
barrels for maturation.
