Intro to Painted Wolf Guillermo Pinotage –
The Painted Wolf Guillermo Pinotage from Swartland South Africa has ripe summer berries and creamy vanilla notes which are the predominant flavours in the complex Pinotage and the small amount of Cabernet added provides some backbone.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Painted Wolf Guillermo Pinotage from Swartland is an intense, rich wine packed with flavours of ripe blueberry and mulberry, exotic spice and creamy vanilla with evident ripe tannins and a long lingering finish. This wine drinks well as a young wine, but will improve gaining additional complexity for at least 6 to 8 years from vintage.
Organically certified Pinotage grapes were sourced from the Kasteelsig vineyard which is owned by Painted Wolf Pack members Billy (Guillermo) and Penny Hughes and these vines are not irrigated. The grapes were hand-picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they were hand sorted, destalked and gently crushed. The wine fermented in small open fermentation bins, then pressed and placed in oak barrels to complete alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine matured in a mixture of French, Hungarian and American oak barrels for roughly 12 months, approximately 50% new wood.
