VINTAGE: 2017


CULTIVAR: 100% Pinotage


WINE OF ORIGIN: Wellington


HARVEST DATE: February 2017


YIELD: 4 ton/ha


VINIFICATION
Sugar at harvest: 28ºB. Harvested early in the morning.
Bunches and berries were very small, (average bunch weight approx. 125g) which we believe ensures the high level of colour
and flavour concentration of the wine. The berries were “crushed” into stainless steel tank and inoculated with yeast.
Pump overs were done every 4 hours for 20 minutes to extract the colour and flavours. Wine is fortified at ideal sugar level with brandy sprits. Wines is then age in second fill French oak barrels for 12 years.

TASTING NOTES
A Red Brown coloured wine that unfurls with raisin, roasted nuts, honey and oak notes. Taste of fruit cake on the palate followed by a smooth lingering taste.

FOOD PAIRING
Enjoy with biscuits, figs and a variety of cheeses.
