Hoopenburg Pinotage 2018

Hoopenburg Pinotage 2018
Hoopenburg Pinotage 2018

This vivid Pinotage with a bright Persian red colour displays aromas of red cherries and blueberry compote on the nose—an explosion of fruit and perfume.  The palate further unveils depth of fruit with layers of ripe raspberry and plum.  This wine is concentrated, yet fresh and elegant with delicate tannins.

Wine Information

The origin of this 100%  Pinotage stems from a high-lying vineyard overlooking False Bay and the Stellenbosch hills. Early morning harvesting took place at a ripe balling of 25°. Cold maceration in open fermenters of the gently crushed and destemmed berries was allowed for 7 days before fermentation started. Pressing and ageing in  French oak barrels followed for 10 months. Finally the wine was racked into a tank. No fining and very coarse filtration was done before bottling.
