True to its parents, this Pinotage shows the earthy, savoury elements of Pinot Noir and the riper, more textured elements typical of Cinsault. Cherries and mulberries dominate the aroma while hints of fynbos and a slight earthiness bringing depth to the wine. Soft and smooth.

There are two blocks of bushvine Pinotage on Remhoogte totaling 2 hectares. One has a cool south facing aspect and the other is slightly warmer and west facing. Both blocks are planted on decomposed Table Mountain Sandstone soils.

The grapes are sorted in the vineyard and then twice upon arrival at the cellar. Once in tank, grapes are cooled to below 10 degrees Celsius and cold soaked for 7-10 days. Fermentation proceeds with wild yeasts. The tanks are mixed and punched down regularly to ensure optimal extraction. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 225l French oak barriques, followed by 17 months' maturation.
