Spice Route Pinotage Swartland 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is made from a single bushvine vineyard on our farm, Klein Amoskuil in Malmesbury. These unirrigated bushvines were planted in 1997 on Koffieklip soil. The bunches were fermented in 5-ton open concrete fermenters with manual punch-down of the skins twice a day, extracting deep colour and flavour. The wine was pressed off and transferred to tight-grain American oak barrels for malolactic fermentation, of which half were seasoned barrels. The wine matured for 14 months before bottling. Intense ruby red colour. Black plums and cherries on the nose, with dark spice and cedar. Fresh dark fruits complimented by firm but elegant tannin and lingering spice.
