Org de Rac The Old Pumphouse Cape Ruby 750ml

As a non vintage blend maximum consistency was achieved in the character of this organic Cape Ruby. Colour is a very bright deep beetroot. Opulent nose with a mixture of baked fruitcake and fresh berries underlined with a rich nutty mature bouquet. This complex Swartland Cape Ruby shows a well-integrated wood backdrop.
Light sugar with harmonious acid balance. Fruity mouthfeel and light lingering freshness.

in the vineyard : The grapes were matured on the vines to reach a sugar content of 25-26 balling. The spirit used for fortification was distilled from our organic wine which makes this product a 100% natural organic fortified wine

about the harvest: The grapes were fermented and pressed through in small tanks to reach a natural alcohol of 12%. Then fortified to 18 vol% on the skin and macerated for 2 months. By doing so we could integrate the fruit and have a softening effect on the overall fortified wine.
This non-vintage blend comprises out of three vintages taking the best suited barrels and blended toghether to produce this Swartland gem.
