Lammershoek Mysteries Pinotage 2020

Lammershoek Mysteries Pinotage 2020

Winemaking

From the grapes of two dry-land Pinotage vineyards, the oldest planted in 1971 – grown by bush-vine method. The grapes were hand-harvested in small 20 kg crates in the early morning. The bunches were then sorted to ensure the highest quality standard. A combination of whole-bunch and whole-berry fermentation took place in large open concrete tanks. Further pressing took place before the fermentation was completed, the latter which took place in closed concrete tanks, where the wine remained for a further 10 months’ aging. The final product shows dominant fruit on both taste and nose. The crunchy acidity is well balanced by the typical Pinotage perception of fruit sweetness. No oak contact was allowed in the process to maximise the pure fruit and true expression of this South African cultivar.

Tasting Notes

Bright ruby red in hue. This pinotage has notes of cherries, ripe plums, blueberries and inviting spicy undertones. Delicious dark fruit on the palate with elegant but firm tannins. The finish has light spiciness, some chocolate and with a lingering aftertaste.
