The False Bay Pinotage Hints of spice and red fruits. The flavors follows through on pallet. Juicy fruit on palate with fine, soft tannins and a long dry finish. It will complement dishes from game such as eland and kudu.
Extensive experience in working with the Pinotage grape, provided us with the knowledge to bring out the best in the varietal and that is to work with low yielding, old untrellised bush vines. This approach seems to change a grape that is more beast than beauty into something special. We know that Pinotage will never be a sleek sauve international red, but it allows us to get that very authentic flavour that smacks of the earth, from grapes that will deliver that taste to you in the way that no other will. Those stunted plantings that look like twisted bonsai proved to have the stuff of greatness. Fruit so dense that it needs the tough love of open fermenters to dispel the volatile esters. Since there is no old-world style to emulate, our journey with Pinotage has very much been an adventure.
