Overview

These grapes come from beautiful, old bush vines on the Helderberg, at the heart of the estate we’re situated on in Stellenbosch. These vines are 35 to 42 years old – a ripe, old age that gives spice and fruit equal impact.

Winery Tasting Notes

"By handling the grapes and the ferment as we did, we could focus all the good aspects of Pinotage’s heritage into the bottle (cherry fruit related to Pinot, spiciness related to Cinsault) and avoid all those that have so often made Pinotage infamously awful.

Using only free-run juice is reflected in the red cherries, violets and juicy palate, which finishes with balance, length, a touch of minerality and some really funky spice. Definitely a Pinotage you can drink a bottle of on your own – even slightly chilled. And now that we’re hooked, we’ll be making a lot more like this…”
