Rijk’s CWG Pinotage 2012

To ensure maximum fruit and colour retention, the grapes were hand-picked in the cool of the night. The crushed berries were given a 56 hour cold maceration prior to fermentation. Pigeage took place 3 times a day to extract tannin and colour. Skins were pressed at 5°B. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels. Matured for 22 months in one new and one second fill French oak barrel.
