K&L Notes

With almost no other wine region in the world producing this unique varietal, South Africa has forged the way in the polarizing world of Pinotage. A genetic cross of Pinot Noir and Cinsault, it was created in South Africa in 1925 by Abraham Izak Perold, the first Professor of Viticulture at Stellenbosch University. Perold sought to combine the best qualities of both varietals, highlighting the heartier qualities of Cinsault and the elegant, ethereal ones of Pinot Noir. Production and quality of Pinotage bottlings have grown exponentially since it was first introduced. The grape produces a wide range of styles from light and fruity to tannic and rich, making it fun to explore, but perhaps a little intimidating.

    From the cool climate of the Bot River region, the majority of this wine is made from 40-plus-year-old vines. The older vines lend structure and length, while the younger vines contribute bright red fruit and vibrancy. Fermentation occurs in concrete tanks, which helps round out harsh edges without contributing any oak flavor. This one is fresh and absolutely delicious!
