Brampton Pinotage 2015

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.

in the vineyard : The 2015 season was one of the driest and earliest in years, with a somewhat smaller wine grape harvest promising exceptional wines. Fruit was sourced from Durbanville and the Swartland.

about the harvest: Grapes were harvested from the end of February to mid-March 2015

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.
