Rijk’s CWG Pinotage 2009

100% Pinotage The grapes were hand picked at night. 56 hours cold maceration prior to fermentation. Pigeage took place 3 times per day to extract tannin and colour. Skins were pressed at 5 degrees balling. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels. Matured for 20 months in 70% new and 30% 2nd fill French oak barrels. Tasting note: Alluring rich red colour. Intense nose of cherries and bramble fruit with underlying cinnamon notes. The palate is well weighted and balanced, with elegant tannin to ensure great maturation potential. The wine will be ready for drinking in 2014.
