Winemaker: Christoff De Wet
Appellation: Western Cape
Grape varietal: Pinotage
Selected vineyards throughout the Klein Karoo are used. Calitzdorp Pinotage is mostly planted in deep alluvial Gamka River soils, as well as red clay soils with a gravel layer underneath.
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 was 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.
