About The Harvest
100% Pinotage harvested fully ripe at 25º Balling from blocks specifically selected for their fruity character.
In The Cellar
Cool fermented after a cold maceration on the skins and pressed off early, before the development of hard tannins. This cheerfully Petit Pinotage reflects the modern fruit driven wine style that is in huge demand today.
