Kleinbosch Pinotage 2001

Ruby red, clear and brilliant. A touch of fresh mulberries, some forest flavours - typical pinotage character. Mouth filling, lots of fruit with soft tannins, a good follow-through and aftertaste, with well-balanced acidity.
Will compliment roasts and stews of beef, lamb and game. Serve at room temperature.

AWARDS
Veritas 2002 - Silver

ageing : The Pinotage is ready for drinking at the time of release, and will mature for up to three years in the bottle.

in the cellar : After destalking, the free-run juice and berries are inoculated with specially selected yeast strains to start fermentation. The juice will ferment on the skins until the wine maker decides that the correct colour intensity and tannin concentration have been reached, after which the wine is drawn off and the skins to complete fermentation in stainless steel containers.
