False Bay 'Bush Vine' Pinotage

Tax included.

The grapes for False Bay Bush Vine Pinotage stem from a single vineyard of unirrigated bush vines in Stellenbosch. The attraction to this mature (planted in 1996), coastal, bush vine vineyard were the cooler temperatures and small, naturally balanced and concentrated berries. Made by Waterkloof's talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard. Balanced grapes are hand harvested, fermented spontaneously with wild yeast and then raised in large wooden casks (or 'foudre' en Francais). The resulting wine therefore, is perhaps more 'Pino' than 'Tage'. No additions other than sulphur as a preservative. Grown, made and bottled in South Africa. Vegan friendly wine. False Bay - Real Wine, Coastal Vineyards, Sustainably Farmed, Hand Picked, Naturally Crafted, Wild Ferment, Cask Aged.

False Bay 'Bush Vine' Pinotage is youthful, vibrant and fruity. Hints of spice and red fruits on the nose with clean bright, juicy strawberry compote and cream flavours as well as dry earthy notes on the palate. The wine is well balanced with fine soft tannins and a long dry finish. Perfect with boerwurst, game or good old fashioned sausage and mash.
