Pinotage

Bloemendal Waterlily Pinotage Grapes: 100% Pinotage
Origin: Estate grown, Durbanville

Production Method & Ageing:


Handpicked grapes, de-stemmed and crushed at the cellar. The wine fermented on the skins in open top fermenters for a period of 12 days with twice daily punch downs to assist extraction. After pressing, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in tanks. Aged in 300L French Oak barrels for 16 months. 2nd and 3rd fill barrels were used.

Tasting note/ ageing ability/ recommendations:

A youthful appearance with dark crimson core is supported by a lively fruit forward aroma, the wine is full bodied with supple tannins and medium acidity for a fresh finish. It will age gracefully for 3 to 6 years.
