Grapes: 52% Pinotage, 48% Shiraz
An authentic South African New World blend that is fruit-driven and medium-bodied.
The Shiraz component was matured in 225-litre European oak barrels for 12 months. The Pinotage component was oak staved for 6 months with added micro-oxygenation.
Grapes were selected from areas most ideal for growing both varietals, namely Swartland and Wellington.
Picked at optimal fruit ripeness, the Pinotage component was pre-soaked and the Shiraz component whole-bunch fermented with carbonic maceration.Both varieties were fermented at 28 °C with regular pump-overs.
A unique blend of dry plums, mulberries and stewed fruit beautifully balanced by a touch of vanilla and herb.
An array of complex flavours that settle with deeper notes of pepper, mocha and dark fruit. A firm structure ushers in a memorable finish.
Pair with big flavours such as brisket stew, beef steak, lamb and venison.
