Nederburg 1791 Pinotage 2018

Dark ruby.  Ripe plums and sweet berries with gentle oak spice vanilla nuances.  Juicy berries, soft tannins and a lingering aftertaste on this medium-bodied wine.

Delicious with pasta, pizza, roast leg of lamb, bobotie and even chocolate.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sourced from vineyards across the Western Cape. The viticulturist works hand-in-hand with the grape growers in managing each vineyard block to ensure the best quality fruit for this wine. The different microclimates and soil types associated with each vineyard add to the complexity of the wine.

in the cellar : 

The grapes were harvested by hand and machine at 23º to 24,5º Balling from the end of January to mid-February. They were crushed and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 25ºC to 28ºC for approximately two weeks. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured in contact with French and American oak for a period of five months.
