100 % Pinotage
Natural Fermentation is slower and results in much longer time on the skins and longer fermentation period. This gives this wine more intense and more complex aroma profile. The wine is rich, full bodied with attractive dark red fruit, subtle oak spice, and sweet nuances of caramel and vanilla.
Big & bold 2015 exudes ripeness & power, shows high-toned notes through intense black fruit. Balance is challenged by spiky oak, thick tannins.
Grapes were selected and harvested by hand to ensure optimum quality. After de-stemming grapes were cold macerated whole berry for 6 days to exctract colour and flavours before fermentation. The wine was fermented with Natural Yeast with regular punch downs to extract more colour, flavour and tannins. Malolactic fermentation was completed in barriques followed by maturation for 21 months in French, American and Hungarian oak, 70% new oak and 30% 2nd fill oak barriques.
