Smooth and quenching palate with fine red fruit flavours and a fresh acidity. Lovely for those hot summer days.
Selected vineyards throughout the Klein Karoo are used. Calitzdorp Pinotage is planted in deep alluvial Gamka River soils while Coffee Rock and Sand Stone forms the base for Pinotage from the Upper-Langkloof.
The grapes were harvested from mid-January to late February at 21-22 degrees Balling. Picked early morning the grapes were crushed, destemmed and the juice was drained from the skins immediately. The juice was fermented for over three weeks at low temperatures before the wine is racked, filtered and bottled.
Colour: Beautiful light rose petal blush pink.
Bouquet: Soft elegant rose petal, candyfloss nose with hints of strawberries.
Taste: Smooth and quenching palate with fine red fruit flavours and a fresh acidity. Lovely for those hot summer days.
Food pairing: The perfect partner to fresh summer salads and grilled cob.
