Restless River 'Wanderlust' 2019 is a 50/50 blend of pinot noir and pinotage from vineyards that lie side by side. The pinot noir grapes were harvested on 7 February and the pinotage on 2 February. Grapes were hand-picked and placed whole-cluster into open top oak vats and then sealed. After a few days, natural fermentation began and the grapes were left undisturbed. A few gentle punch-downs were done during mid-fermentation. Both were pressed in an old basket press, with the pinotage being pressed after seven days, before dry. The wine was then put into old French barrels where the pinotage fermentation was completed. The wine remained in barrels for 12 months, then stainless steel tanks for two months before bottling, no fining. Bottled at 13%. (Bottle size 750ml)
