Obvious fruit is dominant on both taste and nose. Huge crunchy acidity is well balanced by the perception of sweet fruit. The wine lasts forever in your glass and even though it is made to mimic certain Beaujolais-style wines, this wine still speaks of Pinotage. The grapes were harvested by hand in small 15kg lug boxes in the early morning. The bunches were roughly sorted and anything under-ripe berries removed. A combination of whole bunch and de-stemmed crushed berry fermentation was carried out in large open concrete fermentation tanks. We wine was pressed earlier on before the end of fermentation. Fermentation was completed in close concrete tanks and underwent a further 10 month aging process in these tanks.
