Winemaker's Notes
"Crafted from the fruit of some of SouthAfrica's oldest Pinotage vines, thisbenchmark bottling is a true Cape classic!Alluringly complex and distinctive, itboasts juicy layers of dark berries,cassis and plum intertwined with hintsof banana and mocha and a smoky,minerally undercurrent."

Technical Notes

The wine was then run to 225 liter French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and aging. It was aged in barrel for 15 months and was bottled without fining or filtration.Wood aging: 15 months in 225 liter French Nevers oak barrels (60% new, 40% second fill). RS 2.4 g/l; TA 5.5 g/l; pH 3.6; Alcohol 14.5%; Maturation potential: 5-7 years with proper storage"
