Tasting Notes: A lighter-bodied Pinotage with perfume and elegance.
The Juicy fruit center is balanced by pepper and spice and combined with crunchy acidity and textural tannins create an approachable, well-balanced, and delicious example of this South African variety.
Technical notes: Hand-picked fruit from the Greenacres Vineyard in Merriang South was destemmed and fermented in open tubs with a small percentage of whole bunches. Gentle cap management and temperature control ensured a steady ferment. The wine was then pressed to finish its ferment in older oak barrels where it aged for 10 months prior to bottling.
Vineyard: Greenacres Vineyard, Merriang South
Region: Alpine Valleys
