Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Pinotage Fairtrade, South Africa

Kleine Zalze Cellar Selection Pinotage Fairtrade, South Africa

Made from Pinotage harvested from two blocks in the Stellenbosch and False Bay regions. After a cold maceration of around four days, two thirds of the juice is fermented in open-topped tanks with regular punching down of the cap, the balance in closed stainless steel tanks with pumping over. The wine is aged in second and third fill barrels for the traditional punched down style of Pinotage and fourth and fifth fill French oak barrels for the wine that were fermented in stainless steel, both parcels for just over a year. Shows mulberry and black plum fruit flavours on a soft and spicy palate.
