Cape Chamonix, Greywacke Pinotage

Whole bunches are hand-selected on sorting tables and fermented in stainless steel vats (maceration carbonique) at 24-28° C for 10 days on the skins. Partly dried grapes are added whole for a second fermentation between 1820° C for 10 days on the skins. After malolactic fermentation the wine of about 14% alcohol is matured for 18 months in 228ℓ French oak barrels with 30% new wood. Style and maturity: The Greywacke Pinotage has a deep garnet red colour with tinges of dark violet when young. The bouquet is complex with scents recalling wild berries, spice and cherries. On the palate the wine shows full body and rich dark chocolate bitles extract with fruit flavours balanced elegantly by tannins with a long and lingering finish that reveals a sweetness reminiscent of liquorice.
