Guillermo Pinotage Painted Wolf 12/13

Guillermo Pinotage Painted Wolf 2014

The Vineyard
Organically certified Pinotage grapes were sourced from the Kasteelsig vineyard which is owned by Painted Wolf Pack members Billy (Guillermo) and Penny Hughes. The site is primarily red Glenrosa soil with some Oakleaf, both shale rich duplex soils, and the vines are not irrigated. Kasteelsig supplies grapes for some of South Africans top boutique wines. Yields are round 8 tons to the hectare.

Winemaking
The grapes were hand picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they were hand sorted, destalked and gently crushed. The wine fermented with a mixture of natural and commercials yeasts in small open fermentation bins with 4 -6 punch downs per day. Before the wine was totally dry, we pressed and placed it in oak barrels to complete alcoholic and malolactic fermentation.
Tasting Notes
An intense, rich wine packed with flavours of ripe blueberry and mulberry, exotic spice and creamy vanilla with evident ripe tannins and a long lingering finish.
