Classic Pinotage aromas of spicy mulberries, plum pudding and cherries, supported by smoky bacon nuances. Juicy and accessible with soft palate and delicious fruit concentration.

This cheerfully unwooded wine can be served with a generous slice of pizza or a barbeque, ideal for a 'braai'. Perfect with almost any happy casual occasion!

Aspect: Southeast-facing slopes
About The Harvest
100% Pinotage harvested fully ripe at 25º Balling from blocks specifically selected for their fruity character.
Yield: 9 tons per hectare
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.
