Cape Winemakers Guild

Rijk’s CWG Pinotage 2011

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 22 months in 50% new and 50% second fill French oak barrels. Tasting Notes: This opaque-black coloured wine has a complex nose of liquorice and blackcurrant, supported by some fynbos aromas. These exquisite aromas carry through onto a rich, creamy palate. Silky, well-integrated and elegant tannins keep this wine in perfect harmony and balance.
