In the Bottle

Full bodied deep coloured new world Pinotage. Enticing dark red berry aromas on the nose follow through to a complex and deliciously layered mouth feel with well-integrated tannins. This bespoke bottle is one from a limited 5-barrel production to nurture exceptional wines. In the Vineyard (tendered by Rudolf Jansen van Vuuren) The Pinotage vines were planted in 2013 and thrive on the decomposed high mineral granite Oakleaf with sub–dominant Grenrosa and Tukulu soil formations on the mountain. The block is carefully manipulated for high concentrated flavour with low yields. Controlled irrigation and 5 strand hedge system with moveable foliage wires. The high trellis system ensures perfect vertical shoot positioning. Hand harvest in February at dawn to keep grapes cool for vinification.

In the Cellar (guided by J.G. Auret)

The grapes were harvested by hand, de-stemmed and then crushed. Maceration and controlled fermentation were undertaken at 25°C over 10 days. The fermentation was completed in stainless steel tanks with twice daily remontage. The wine was matured in 1st fill French barrels. Before bottling and labelling at the Estate the wine was stabilised and filtered.
