Winemaker Notes

This wine shows off a modern, elegant style of Pinotage. The grapes for this wine were selected from two of our partners’ finest bushvine
vineyards. One vineyard, located on the western slopes of Paarl mountain, is an early ripener and gives a fresher, brighter fruit style; the
second vineyard sits on a bowl of shale and adds a richer, more structured component. The grapes were handled carefully and fermented at cool
temperatures to preserve aromatics and pressed early to give a soft, plush mouthfeel.

This Pinotage shows vibrant aromas of cherry and raspberry notes, with a hint of cedar and vanilla from the oak maturation. The palate shows ample red fruit and a delicious savoury note. 4% Grenache adds vibrancy and complexity to the blend. The Pinotage grapes come from a 25-year-old dry-farmed bush-vine vineyard. The soils are rich in granite which tends to play a crucial role in creating a rich texture in the wine. The vineyard is quite highly elevated and the wind naturally keeps the crop low. Vegan friendly.

    Cherry, raspberry and red current, silky on the palette with some depth, distinctly aromatic, very pleasing easy drinking wine, I wish I had more. We bought this bottle in Robertson on a trip to South and it was the most inexpensive wine that we brought home to Minnesota mostly because the store sommelier pointed me to it over more expensive pinotage. I had not been to SA in 9 years, this was such a treat, I wish food and wine in the US was this much of a bargain!
