The Pinotage is intensely perfumed, cedar-toned plums and dark berries, backed by a smooth – textured tannin structure. This lively, generous wine is a traditional South African variety. Has 4+ years ageing potential. Enjoy with venison and game birds, or hearty casseroles.
It was our desire to produce a Bordeaux Blend and so we planted the classic varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. These vines were planted on carefully selected sites and took 9 years to reach maturity. The grapes were fermented whole with native yeasts and left for 5 weeks on their skins. The wine was then barrel aged for two years followed by four years of bottle maturation.
