Overview

Two remarkable old vineyards were chosen for this interesting example of Pinotage. The first, planted on the slopes of Klapmutskop outside Stellenbosch brings ripe, full and fleshy fruit notes. The second vineyard comes from the Voor Paardeberg, where the sandy, granite soils produce wine with lovely tension and superb texture.

Winery Tasting Notes

By handling the grapes and the ferment as we did, we were able to focus all of the good aspects of Pinotage’s heritage into the bottle (cherry fruit related to Pinot, spiciness related to Cinsault) and avoid all of those that have so often made Pinotage infamously dreadful. Free-run juice only was used which displays red cherries, violets and a 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. Evenslightly chilled. Now we’rehooked, we’ll be makinga lot more like this...
