Mountain Range Pinotage 2022

R 135.00

Tasting Notes

Youthful purple, fresh in colour. A flavour explosion with dark chocolate; rich black fruit, almonds, and black cherries on the nose. All these elements follow through adding complexity and depth to the palate a light to medium body with soft, well-integrated tannins, with lovely fruit and wood balance.

Winemaker's Notes

Pinotage from premium vineyards harvested mid-February 2022. Only superior-quality free-run juice was used. 24-hour cold soaking with the addition of yeast after that. Colour and aroma extraction was done by applying three pump-overs per day.

Fermentation lasted five days. The wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation done in combination with dark toasted French oak. The wine was filtered and bottled in November 2022.
