Abundant strawberry and ripe cherry flavours on the nose. A slight hint of chocolate, liquorice and coffee gives added complexity. The palate is smooth and soft with beautiful berry fruit that lingers. Elegant tannin structure rounds off this accessible wine.

The wine is a perfect companion for a juice lamb roast with baby vegetables or fresh pasta at your favourite Italian place. Or enjoy it on its own.

in the vineyard : The grapes were sources from our own pristine vineyards and selected site in the Franschhoek Valley.

in the cellar : After harvesting, cooling and sorting, the grapes were crushed to the red fermenters and a cold soak done at 7 ° C for 3 days. After inoculation with yeast the punch downs started intensely for 4 days before pressing at 8 ºB. This ensures a supple and smooth Pinotage. The finished wine underwent MLF in barrel and tank and further maturation for 12 months on staves before blending and bottling.
