The Pinotage grapes were picked at an early stage to ensure an abundance of sweet red berries aromas. After crushing the grapes the juice was immediately drained and separated from the skins to give the wine its white colour. The juice fermented for 20 days at 11.0?C. After fermentation a fuller bodied and more structured Chenin Blanc was sourced from the Swartland region and blended with the Pinotage.
Beyerskloof Chenin Blanc / Pinotage
Good primary fruit with hints of mineral, citrus and tropical fruits. Elegant, crisp entrance. Refreshingly dry and perfectly balanced. A long lingering finish with resonating fruit, acidity and mineral aftertaste. Enjoyable as a crisp summer drink on its own or a perfect companion to light summer dishes and seafood.
