Cape Winemakers Guild

Rijk’s CWG Pinotage 2015

Grapes were hand-picked at night. A 48 hour cold maceration period was given prior to fermentation. Pigeage took place three times a day to extract tannin and colour. Skins were pressed at 5° balling. Malolactic fermentation was completed in barrels, racked, returned and left to mature for 22 months in a new and a second fill French oak barrel. No fining agents used and only filtered lightly at bottling.
