Idiom 900 Series Pinotage
A three-barrel limited first release of 900 Series Pinotage. A dark, medium-bodied wine with sweet and sour cherries, fynbos and plum aromas. Tantalizing flavours of ripe pomegranate, blackcurrant and dark chocolate on the palate. Sweet tannins and a savoury, meaty finish further enhance the wine. A really well-balanced Pinotage. South Africa in a glass. Decanting recommended.

Grapes were cold-soaked for 3-4 days prior to being crushed and fermented at optimal temperatures, after which it was pressed and Malo-Latic fermentation was done in tank on French oak staves. The wine was then racked to 225L French oak barrels for a 24 months maturation process, before being lightly fined and filtered before bottling.
