BlendPercent 100% Pinotage
Cellar The grapes were hand-picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they were hand-sorted, destalked and gently crushed. The wine fermented with a natural yeasts in small open fermentation bins with four to six punch downs a day. Before the wine was totally dry, we pressed and placed it in oak barrels to complete alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine matured in a mixture of French, Hungarian and American oak barrels for roughly 16 months. Approximately 20 % was new wood.2046 bottles were produced.
FoodSuggest This is super food wine and pairs well with many deeply flavoured dishes. This wine does well with exotic flavours and we would happily push out the boat and serve it with dishes like Peking duck, sticky sweet and sour pork belly, braised beef shanks (Osso Bucco) with polenta and gremolata, wild mushroom risotto or Mexican style mole.
Variety Pinotage
Vineyard Organically certified Pinotage grapes were sourced from the Kasteelsig vineyard which is owned by Painted Wolf Pack member Billy (Guillermo). The site is primarily red Glenrosa soil with some Oakleaf - both shale rich duplex soils and these vines are not irrigated. Kasteelsig supplies grapes for some of South Africans top boutique wines. Yields are round 6.5 tons to the hectare.
