Greywacke Pinotage 2013:
NOTES: The Greywacke Pinotage has a deep garnet red colour with tinges of dark violet when young. The bouquet is complex with scents recalling wild berries, spice and cherries. On the palate the wine shows full body and rich dark chocolate extract. There is also fruit flavours balanced elegantly by tannins in a long finish that reveals a sweetness reminiscent of liquorice.
GRAPES: Pinotage 100%
VINIFICATION & AGING: Whole bunches are hand-selected on sorting tables and fermented in stainless steel vats (maceration carbonique) at 22-28° C for 10 days on the skins. After malolactic fermentation the wine of about 14.5% alcohol is matured for 2 years in 228l French oak barrels with 30% new wood.
