Pinot Gris isn't an abundant grape planted in Stellenbosch and although a lot of the wine drinking world think and assume it is a 'white grape', it is in fact a lovely coppery/dark rose skinned grape. With this being the case, this wine is fermented like a red. Made from 100% Pinot Gris from a vineyard planted in 2007, the 2022 vintage saw a significant change in vinification. This year it was fermented and aged 100% in concrete tanks. The grapes were destemmed into concrete tanks and given a light pump-over once a day for gentle extraction of the rose-coloured hue and chalky tannin. 2022 had such developed tannins that only 6 days on skins was sufficient to give ample texture to the wine. The wine was then drained and pressed into concrete tanks for a further 6 months of elevage. Bottled at 12%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Complex with red fruit notes as well as subtle savoury, with notes of cured meats like prosciutto.

Palate: Fruit forward entry with a savoury mid-palate. Notes of raspberries and strawberries on entry, followed by prosciutto.

Finish: Medium length with an interesting salinity making you eager for another sip.
