Other The grapes were sourced from a selected vineyard on our estate and also an old vineyard in Piekenierskloof (planted 1976). We have been farming these special blocks differently for the past 8 years, and this wine is a culmination of those efforts. After harvesting, sorting and cooling, the grapes were crushed and a cold soak done for 4 days at 7 °C. After inoculation with a selected yeast strain, the punch downs started intensely for only 4 days before pressing at 8 ºB. This ensures a supple and smooth Pinotage. The finished wine underwent malolactic fermentation in the barrel and further maturation for 16 months before blending and bottling. Of the barrels used, 50% were new and the rest 2nd and 3rd fill. We also use 5 % American Oak in this wine.
