Durbanville Hills Pinotage, Durbanville

Durbanville Hills Pinotage, Durbanville

The grapes come mainly from a ten-year-old vineyard, located on a sunny, north-west facing slope on the farm Ongegund supplemented by a small quantity from 20-year-old vines on Maastricht. Great care is taken when extracting colour and fruit from the grapes, as well as ageing, which took place in new and second-fill French oak barrels to ensure the best flavour profile from this notoriously tricky cultivar. A rich, fruity character fills the mouth, backed by silky tannins and raspberry and red cherry flavours
