Description

Rijk’s Reserve Pinotage 2015

Elegance, finesse, complexity and concentration of fruit – full bodied. Special Reserve selection from 15 of the finest barrels.Intense and deep dark colour. Complex and multi-layered red fruit aromas of cherry, strawberry and cranberry on the nose. These expressive aromas carry through onto a rich creamy palate, lingering long after. Silky, well integrated and elegant tannins show the perfect harmony and balance. Superb fine dining wine.

A 48 hour cold maceration period was given prior to fermentation to extract colour and fruit. Extraction during fermentation took place by doing manual punch downs 3 times per day. Skins were gently pressed before fermented dry. MLF took place in barrels, after which it was matured for 22 months in 60% new and 40% 2nd fill French oak barrels. Bottled, laid to rest and aged till released.

TIP!: To be served at 17°C. Decanted two hours before drinking.
