Description

Rijk’s Private Cellar Pinotage 2014

Elegance, finesse, complexity and concentration of fruit are the hallmarks of the wines of Rijk’s Private Cellar. Situated in the picturesque valley of Tulbagh, South Africa, they produce fine food wines to satisfy the sophisticated palate of wine enthusiasts from around the world.

One of Rijk’s most delicate Pinotage’s in the Private Cellar range to date. Rich and intense deep red color. Vibrant nose of ripe red cherry, strawberry and cranberry aromas. These mouth-watering fruity aromas carry through onto a rich, creamy palate with well-integrated subtle oak and wood spice flavours. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel, gorgeous balance and refined tannins on the finish.

100% Pinotage sourced from Rijk’s low yielding vineyards, where the vines were tended to with pride and patience. Harvested by hand in the cool of the night to retain flavours. The grapes are given a 48-hour cold maceration prior to fermentation, in order to extract colour and fruit. Extraction during fermentation occurs through manual punch downs 3 times per day. The skins were gently pressed before fermented dry. Malolactic fermentation took place in wooden barrels. The wine finally ages for 22 months in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels. A total of 40% new, 30% 2nd fill and 30% 3rd fill barrels were used for ageing.

Top tip: Decant an hour before consumption and serve at 16ºC. It’s ageing potential is 12 years or more from the vintage.
