Pinotage 2020

Vibrant dark ruby colour. An abundance of berry flavours. Black fruit, mulberry with plum and black cherry
vivacity. Well-rounded richness with subtle spicy notes. Smooth and balanced texture with a lingering
succulence, framed with an intriguing thought of wood spice.

Picked in the early mornings to maintain the night temperature, our grapes pre-chilled to 4°C before
being de-stemmed and hand sorted. The grapes had 48 hours cold soaking before fermentation to allow
for soft tannin and colour extraction. After fermentation, only the best quality free run juice was drained to
barrels where malolactic fermentation was allowed. Aged in older 225L and 300L French barrels for 12 months.
