Cape Winemakers Guild

Rijk’s CWG Pinotage 2016

The 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 4° Balling. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels. Matured for 22 months in a new and a second ll 300 litre French oak barrel.

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.

Winemaker: Pierre Wahl
