Cape Winemakers Guild

Rijk’s CWG Pinotage 2010

The grapes were hand picked at night and went through 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 22 months in 33% new and 67% second fill French oak barrels. Tasting Notes: This world-class wine has a vibrant deep red colour with an intense nose of ripe black cherries and bramble fruit, with underlying vanilla and cinnamon notes. The palate is well weighted and balanced, with elegant tannin to ensure a great maturation potential.

Winemaker: Pierre Wahl
