Skraalhans Pinotage 2022
Skraalhans is a long gangly weed found in our vineyards, often growing taller than the vines themselves. Loosely translated as lean stray, the name represents this restrained, fresh and elegant new style of Pinotage. A hands-off approach has allowed the vineyards to shine through, giving the wine a profound sense of place.
This wine is dominated by red fruits with classic cherry and mulberry notes. With a vibrant palate and sweet tannins, this wine has a plush and bright finish

IN THE CELLAR
Grapes were machine harvested at 22.3 balling to preserve freshness and maintain lower alcohol. The must was inoculated with biodynamic yeast and only spent 3 days on the skins with two light pump-overs per day. After gently pressing, the wine is transferred tostainless steel tanks for malo-lactic conversion. After completion the wine is racked to 500l old oak barrels to age for 10 months.
