The grapes for False Bay Bush Vine Pinotage stem from a single vineyard of unirrigated bush vines in coastal Stellenbosch. 30 year old vines and cooler vineyard temperatures make for small, naturally balanced and concentrated berries.
Hand harvested, fermented spontaneously with wild yeast and then raised in large wooden casks (or 'foudre' en Francais). The resulting wine therefore, is perhaps more 'Pino' than 'Tage'. Richly-fruited, yet savoury and satisfying, showing plummy aromas with a faint hit of barbecued meat. The palate is full and rich with slightly rustic yet moreish tannins and an impressively long finish.
Perfect with pork belly dishes or barbecued meats, boerwurst, game or good, old fashioned sausage and mash.
No additions other than sulphur as a preservative. Grown, made and bottled in South Africa. Vegan friendly wine.
