MORE INFORMATION:
Oenology: These grapes were harvested at optimum phenolic ripeness. Grapes for this wine comes from 46 year old bush vines and 26 year old trellised vines. Fermented in 1 ton open fermenters for 4 days at 26-28ºC. Punch through and pumped over every 3 hours. 100% MLF completed spontaneously in 225L French oak barrels. Maturation: 16 months wood maturation in 40% new 225L French oak barrels. Winemaker’s notes: Full bodied with dark berry and plum flavours and well balanced with complex aromas from French Oak barrels. A wine with a long lingering finish.

Ostrich fillet with chocolate-chilli sauce, rack of lamb or a hearty beef stew should all pair well with this bold Pinotage.
