Winery of Good Hope Pinotage
Imported | South Africa
These grapes come from beautiful old bush-vines, on the Helderberg Mountain at the heart of the estate where we are located in Stellenbosch and from a fantastic site in the Voor Paadeberg further inland where the granite soils create great tension and complexity in thefruit. At harvest, all grapes were hand-picked into small lug-bins, before passing over the sorting-table.
By special handling of the grapes and the ferment the wine makers were able to focus all of the good aspects of Pinotage’s heritage into the bottle (cherry fruit related to Pinot, spiciness related to Cinsault) and avoid all of those less desirable that have so often made Pinotage infamous. Free-run juice only was used which displays red cherries, violets and a juicy palate, which finishes with balance, length, a touch of minerality and some really funky spice. Definitely a Pinotage you can drink a bottle of on your own. Even slightly chilled.
