Intro to False Bay Bush Vine Pinotage –

False Bay Bush Vine Pinotage has hints of dark fruits and chocolate leading to a heady mix of fruit, rich chocolate and plums supported by soft tannins on the nose and palate. Perfect Pinotage – youthful, vibrant and fruity.

Full tasting note and wine making –

False Bay Bush Vine Pinotage has a bright nose of summer pudding and cream. The palate has a savoury earthiness redolent of its sandy provenance. There were ideal weather conditions during the harvest season – moderate day temperatures, cool night temperatures which had a positive impact on the grape quality with balanced flavours. The best varietal character is brought out by relying on low yielding, old, untrellised bush vines. Pinotage is a proudly South African varietal that allures with an authentic, earthy flavour like no other grape. The grapes for the False Bay Pinotage stem from 30 year and older, unirrigated bush vines in the warmer Paarl region. Fermentation took place in tanks the wine was then aged in large oak vats for 8 months, which tempered the Pinotage tannins, as it allows slow oxygen ingress resulting in a more elegant wine.
