Our Veldfire Pinotage expresses its Pinot noir parentage beautifully. It is lively and smooth on the palate with delicate red fruit coming through on the nose; raspberries, cherries and strawberry are all prominent while still maintaining fine structure and balance.
Grapes were hand selected, crushed and allowed 2 days cold maceration before yeast inoculation (NT50). Fermentation was done in small bins, punched down four to five times daily. Fermented between 22 & 30oC until dry on skins. Malo-lactic fermentation completed in tank. Stavin oak segments added and aged for 6 months before bottling.
