Africa’s only indigenous red wine cultivar from parent grapes Pinot Noir and Hermitage (Cinsault). Stylistically we focus on the fruit and characteristics of the Pinot Noir. An elegant, well rounded wine with soft juicy tannins, the nose offers sweet spices, cassis and ripe berries, sugared orange peel, rooibos and a smoky charcuterie character, which follows through onto the palate, with a savory lingering aftertaste.
Grapes were handpicked and sorted, before being partially fermented in small bins and the balance in stainless steel tanks. Native yeast fermented (no commercial yeast added) for ± 14 days and barrel-matured in specially selected combination of 20% new and 80% matured French oak barrels for 16 months.
