Fairview Pinotage

R100.00

Our national grape, Pinotage arose from Prof. Perold’s crossing of Cinsaut (also known as Hermitage) and Pinot Noir. We’ve opted to create a lighter style Pinotage, achieving assertive freshness and subtle oak. Lively, flavoursome and very South African. A perfect gift for a foreign friend.

Description

The grapes were picked over a number of days to ensure perfect maturity of each block. The bunches were destalked and lightly crushed before fermentation in stainless steel tanks and open top foudres. After malolactic fermentation was completed, the wine spent ten months in 15% new French and American oak barrels, before blending and bottling.
