Spier Signature Pinotage

TASTING NOTES
This classic South African Pinotage offers a generous bouquet of dark cherries, juicy plums and hints of cinnamon with smooth and silky tannins.

WHEN TO DRINK
An everyday favourite - drink this wine at home on a winter's night, and pair it with pulled pork with a fruity barbecue sauce; lamb chops marinated in Muscadel cooked over the coals; or easy homemade burgers and caramelised onions.

ORIGIN
Western Cape (Darling, Durbanville and Paarl)

TERROIR
soil: Clovelly, Hutton and Estcourt.
Temperature: winter ±9° - ±18°C; summer ±14° - 26°C
Annual rainfall: ±650 – ±750mm
Proximity to ocean: 40 – 80km

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Trellised vines planted between 19 and 21 years ago on northeastern slopes yielded the grapes for this wine. The vines received supplementary irrigation and produced 10 tonnes per hectare.

WINEMAKING
Grapes were harvested at ±24°B, gently crushed, de-stemmed and cooled. After two days of cold soaking, the juice was fermented until dry in stainless steel tanks at 24°C. Three pump-overs were conducted daily. After fermentation 20% of the wine was matured in French oak barrels for eight to 10 months; the remainder matured in stainless steel tanks with French oak staves.
