More info

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.
