Description

Description

Winemaker: Christoff de Wet

Vineyards
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.

Winemaking
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.
