The grapes for this wine come from deep shale soil vineyards that ripen later and produced grapes with dark pip ripeness combined with sweet plum and succulent ripe fruit.
The grapes are harvested early morning to ensure robust fruit flavours were retained. After crushing, the grapes underwent a two day cold soaking period.
The juice fermented cold and slowly and was taken from the skins at about three degrees balling before putting into selected French oak barrels that delivers rich coffee and chocolate characters on the palate.
This Coffee Pinotage is an elegant wine, with subtle hints of Coffee and Cocoa and a persisting finish.
