Beeslaar Pinotage 2020

R620.00

W.O. Stellenbosch
100% Pinotage
Single Vineyard – 27 year old vines

Handpicked grapes were de-stemmed, sorted and fermented in open top concrete fermenters. The skins were punched down by hand every 2 hours during fermentation. The juice was drawn off the skins after 3 days. Malolactic fermentation and maturation took place for 20 months in 225L French oak barrels (40% new and 60% 2nd fill).

Deep ruby-red colour, with brooding aromas of black fruits, dark chocolate, savoury meats and a touch of cinnamon spice. The finely grained tannins add a muscular structure to the wine, and is beautifully supported by a plush red fruit profile with flavours of cranberries and raspberries. The hallmark elegance, balance and the long, dry finish completes this luxurious wine.
