Zevenwacht 7even Pinotage 2018
|Ageing||Savour now and over the next 4 years.|
The optimally ripe bunches were given an overnight “cold-soak” to allow for colour extraction early in the winemaking process. Fermentation took place with temperatures peaking at 28ºC. The wine was pressed off the skins directly after fermentation and following malolactic fermentation; it was matured for 3 months on French Oak staves.
