Pure freshness defined by aromas of cassis, blueberry, dark cherry, plum and liquorice. This is Pinotage au naturel. The expression of fruit and the authenticity thereof offers a captivating experience. The Lady M 2018 was selected from a very specific part of the Pinotage vineyard. All grapes were hand harvested at 24,7 Balling and destemmed but not crushed. The juice was cooled down to 14 degrees and cold soaking took place for 3 days. When wild fermentation started the grapes were innoculated with a selected yeast. Between one and two pumpovers a day was done and the grapes were pressed at 5 Balling to reduce extraction of tannins and bitternes and resulted in a wine with intense fruit characteristics and an elegant structure.
