Produced from organically certified grapes grown on Kasteelsig vineyard in the Swartland. This vineyard comprises red Glenrosa and Oakleaf soils, both shale rich duplex soils. Kasteelsig supplies grapes for a number of our most prestigious wines.
The grapes were hand picked into small baskets, hand sorted and crushed into small open fermenters. Wine was fermented with a blend of natural vineyard yeast and commercial strains. We hand punched down the cap a number of times per day. The finished wine was pressed in a basket press. The wine has been aged in French (80%) 225 litre and 300 litres barrels for 18 months with approximately 70% new wood. My ambition was to create a powerful satisfying wine with a rich harmonious palate and a long finish, and an excellent partner for a wide range of dishes.
Pictus III will mature in bottle for 10 years or more.
