La Cave Pinotage

Fruit was picked at optimum maturity and fermented dry on the skins at 26oC in open fermenters with regular punch downs. Full malolactic fermentation was allowed in new French barrels after which the wine was racked to the same barrels and aged and matured for 18 months.

Tasting Notes

A sweet-fruited nose with hints of plum and vanilla aromas. Ripe red fruit tones on the palate are beautifully balanced with firm yet mature tannins. Full bodied yet supple.
