Brampton Pinotage 2014

Deep ruby with a purple tinged rim, revealing bright red and black berry fruit aroma and flavour expressions of mulberry, raspberry and cherry. A ripe, rich style of wine with a fresh finish. Well integrated tannins add intensity and silkiness, backed by the tobacco spiciness typical of Pinotage.

ageing : Best enjoyed within 5 years from vintage.

in the vineyard : Combination of Durbanville and Swartland grapes.

about the harvest: Following a very wet winter, a cool harvest produced good quality grapes with good colour. Fruit sourced from Durbanville and the Swartland was harvested from the end of February to mid-March 2014.

in the cellar : The pinotage grapes were crushed and fermented separately in small batches to maximize varied expressions. Different parcels were blended after 12 months. Subtleties in vinification and origin, as well as judicious blending to amplify the best natural character of the components, add to the intrigue and complexity of the final blend.
