Youthful purple, fresh in colour. A mocha explosion with dark chocolate, rich black fruit, almonds, and black cherries on the nose. All these elements follow through adding complexity and depth on the palate. Light to medium body with soft, well integrated tannins. Lovely fruit and wood balance, this wine is made to enjoy young.
Pinotage from premium vineyards harvested mid - February 2021. Only superior quality free run wine was used. 24-hour cold soaking with the addition of yeast thereafter. Colour and aroma extraction was done applying three pump-overs per day. Fermentation lasted six days. The wine underwent 100% malolactic fermentation done in combination with dark toasted French oak. The wine was filtered and bottled on 28 October 2021.
