Variety

100% Pinotage

Textbook Cape Pinotage, a light oak maturation adds to the overall complexity of the finished wines.

Viticulture

Grapes were tracked from a variety of macro-climates ranging from warmer Southern slopes, basking in long hours of sunlight to cooler pockets of vines where African Ocean breezes ensure ultimate expression of cultivar and land. Our Cape climate allows the vines to drink in the winter rainfall and ripen slowly in the warm summer season before harvesting in February at an average of 24°C.

Winemaking

Fermented on the skins for 7 days with three aerations to unleash inherent colours and flavours. Once dry, pressing took place and the young wine was placed onto French oak staves before malolactic fermentation. A further 3 months on the wood captures thorough integration and complexity.

Jaco's Tasting notes

Dark red colour with sweet black fruit flavours on the nose.On the palate the wine has soft, sweet tannins with ripe fruit flavours. The wood is well integrated and gives coffee and chocolate flavours on nose and palate.

For your drinking pleasure

This delightful Pinotage can be enjoyed on its own or with a BBQ steak, lamb stew or something exciting like a Thai red curry, be different and try and it with a double thick chocolate fudge cake.
