21 Gables Pinotage 2014

R260.00

SOIL
Decomposed granite.

TASTING NOTES

Flavours of caramalised black cherries, hints of dark spice and dark chocolate.  The palate follows with a smooth entry rewarding with fruit and velvety tannins that balance the wine for a full palate experience.  

VINIFICATION

Grapes were hand harvested to minimize damage to the berries. Grapes were chilled before bunch sorting. After de-stemming, the berries were hand sorted to remove raisins, pink berries and large berries. Cold soaking preceded temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks and open-top French oak vats. Free run wine was drained to a combination of 1st and 2nd fill French, American and Hungarian oak barrels and matured for 18 months. Barrel selections were made to create this balanced, cool climate Pinotage with great complexity and ageing potential.

WHEN TO DRINK
Enjoy with mature beef, venison, lamb and ostrich dishes with berry jus or strong cheese.

  1. Fantastic Pinotage

    Posted by Dr Chris Hofmeyr on 28th Aug 2014

    I'm not usually a big Pinotage drinker, but the 21 Gables Pinotage is absolutely sublime!


  2. Delicate

    Posted by Chris Mahon on 8th Oct 2013

    A delicate little wine, cheeky, but not pretentious, a little feminine in the after-taste, but nevertheless, brave, courageous, thrusting, and outward looking, with a slight hint of melancholy.
