More info

Pinotage grapes were sourced from a number of blocks of older vines in Paarl. In the past vintages the grapes were sourced from Southern Cross vineyard, from our Painted Wolf pack members Ros and Pete Koch. This year we harvested their grapes for red wine, and subsequently sourced grapes for this rosé elsewhere

Winemaking
I set out to make the most delicious and compelling dry rosé possible from Pinotage. The grapes are hand harvested into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they are destalked, gently crushed, and cooled before being left on skins for roughly 6 hours. Juice is then drawn off the skins and cold fermented in tank.

Ageing potential
This wine is delicious as a young wine but will gain complexity and interest with a couple of years of bottle aging.
