Beyerskloof Traildust Pinotage 2013

The grapes were hand-picked in February 2013 from block A (bush vines) which is planted on the famous Bottelary gravel soils. The grapes came into the cellar at optimum ripeness, with the following analyses before fermentation: 24.9°B; pH – 3.52; TA – 7.6 g/l. The juice stayed on the skins for 3 days at an average temperature of 26°C. Punch-downs were done every 2 hours during fermentation and the juice was separated from the skins at 4.5°B. After malolactic fermentation the CWG selected Pinotage went to 225 litre new French oak barrels for 19 months.
