Tasting Notes

Skraalhans is a gangly weed found in our vineyards, often growing taller than the Bush vines themselves. Our hands-off approach has allowed the vineyards to shine through, giving the wine a profound sense of place. This new, vibrant version of Pinotage is bright, fresh and elegant.

Ageing Potential

This Pinotage is accessible now as a treat with cured meats, but will also age comfortably for the next 5 years.


Blend Information

100% Pinotage

Food Suggestions

Delicious served with barbecued ostrich steaks or springbok fillet from the braai. 


In The Vineyard

21-Year-old bush vines planted in weathered granite soil. Yield of 4.2 tons per hectare – all dry land, unirrigated. 


In The Cellar

This Pinotage was harvested at 22B and fermented for 3 days on skins, to ensure light extraction and preserve fresh fruit flavours. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 10 months in old 500L barrels
