Scions of Sinai Féniks Pinotage 2017
A Lighter style of Pinotage. Focus is on the purity of the fruit together with soft grainy light tannins and long follow. Savoury minerality.
All grapes are handpicked into small handcarried boxes. Smaller than usual clusters in 2017. Picked at an earlier ripeness spectrum.Gentle hand in the cellar and no pigéage. Just soaking the skins/grapes in their own goodness to leach out the terroir in a long natural fermentation rather than grinding the tannins out. A complex combination of wholecluster and destemmed grape portions. Gently basketpressed by hand. The fermented wine spends around 10 months on its lees in older (4th fill) French oak barrels and from there gets handbottled without filtration.
This wine is fit with Mediterranean dishes.
