Beyerskloof Traildust Pinotage 2010

The grapes were hand-picked on 4 February 2010 from block A (bush vines) which is planted on the famous Bottelary gravel soils. On this specific block, we only left one grape bunch per shoot. The grapes came into the cellar at optimum ripeness, with the following analyses before fermentation: 26.2 degrees B; pH – 3.84; TA – 7.3 g/l; AS – 3.9 g/l. The juice stayed on the skins for 4 days at an average temperature of 23.5 degrees C. Punch-downs were done every 2 hours during fermentation and the juice was separated from the skins at 4 degrees balling. After malolactic fermentation, the CWG selected Pinotage went to 225 litre new French oak barrels for 21 months. Tasting Notes: Deep, dark red colour. Rich bouquet of black berries, dark cherries, prunes and cedar oak flavours. A complex Pinotage with an excellent balance between fruit and oak. This wine should develop well in the bottle over the next 10 to 15 years.
