Dark and almost purple in color, this is Pinotage a truly South African grape! Berry fruits and harmonious on the nose with whiffs of Charcuterie. On the palate macerated plums and that subtle charcuterie character following from the nose. A nice athleticism with bright freshness, balanced in acidity, with an elegant tannic pull.
Fermentation is allowed to begin spontaneously in large concrete open fermenters, this will last 7-8 days. During fermentation only a punch-down method is used to allow for gentle extraction after which it is manual basket pressed. It is then left undisturbed in 1500L concrete eggs and a few seasoned barrels for 9 months to maintain that poise and reflection of site.
Residual Sugar: 1.5 g/L
