The grapes for this wine have been harvested from three vineyards, Kasteelsig in the Swartland and Leeuwenkuil in Agter Paarl and Southern Cross in the Simondium region of Paarl. Southern Cross is a site with granite soils whilst the other two sites have similar shale soils. None of the blocks from which the grapes have been sourced is irrigated. Grapes have been hand picked. The bulk of the Pinotage was destalked and fermented in tanks with staves. Malolactic and maturation was completed on staves. The remaining Pinotage was fermented in small open fermenters and hand punched. It was pressed straight into wood and "completed malolactic fermentation in barrel. Pinotage 95% – Malbec 5%"

French / American Oak Maturation.

Pinotage is the best possible red wine in the world to pair with Mexican dishes such as Fajitas and Mole. It is also great with spicy stews. The wine matches cumin seeds, and smoky chilli flavours and flavoursome South African specialties such as smoked beef ribs and spicy potjiekos.
