Overhex Survivor Pinotage


Vintage Conditions
The 2015 harvest had the earliest start in decades and was also one of the driest in years, with a 2 percent smaller grape harvest promising exceptional wines. Warm weather in August resulted in earlier bud break, after which a warm, dry and windy summer kept vineyard growth under control and accelerated ripening. Although the dry, warm conditions and a lack of rain necessitated additional irrigation, the dry weather during harvest time was ideal to ensure healthy grapes without diseases or rot. This dryland region crops decreased, but smaller berries promise remarkable quality.

A barrel-matured wine with hearty fruit flavours including prune, plum and cherry are complemented by elegant notes of spice and cedar.

Grapes were sourced from low-yielding old vines (10 to 20 years old). The soils are deep red Oakleaf and Hutton ensuring excellent water-retention and adding structure and fullness to the wines. The vines have been planted in such a way to benefit optimally from the cool Benguela current sea breezes. Barrel maturation lasted for 18 months whereby the wine was racked only once.
