Produced in a cool climate style which emphasizes the heritage of Pinot noir en Hermitage. Predominantly, aged in French oak barrels with low toasting levels to emphasize fruit and volume in the final wine. The use of 15% American oak boosts roundness and brings forth a dark broody character in final wine. 20%. New oak was used in final blend.
Groot Phesantekraal Pinotage
Vibrant red-purple hue in the glass with aromas of nutmeg, star anise cinnamon and subtle smoky undertones. On the palate a burst of mulberry and sour cherry which interlaces beautifully with the sweet spice. Subtle smokiness and balanced acidity lingers on the finish.
