KWV Classic Collection Pinotage 2012

KWV Classic Collection Pinotage 2012

Red berry, mulberry and blue berry characters are the primary notes to emanate from this rich and flavourful Pinotage. There are subtle nuances of wood spices and dried herb aromas too. The palate is seductively soft and juicy, with silky tannins and a long, gentle finish.

Fillet, beef or risotto dishes are ideal culinary partners to this wine although it is just as fine whensavoured by itself.

in the vineyard : The winter preceding the 2012 vintage was characterized by far lower than average rainfall. This trend continued into the summer, resulting in vineyards showing signs of lower soil
moisture by way of the reduced berry size and bunch weight. A cooler ripening season with even temperatures led to steady and measured ripening of the grapes. Overall, the smaller
berry size and lower yields promise great concentration, good quality and intense colour in the 2012 vintage wines.

in the cellar : Maturation: 8 - 10 months wood maturation.
