Description

Hand-picked in 500kg fruit bins, the grapes for the Durbanville Hills’s Collector’s Reserve Pinotage were handled with minimum intervention and de-stemmed over a sorting table into 15 ton fermenters. After fermentation with a preferred yeast strain and continuous timer-regulated pump-over cycles in combination with compressed air, the wine was matured in a combination of new and second fill, tight grained medium toasted French oak barrels for 14 months. The Durbanville Hills’s Collector’s Reserve Pinotage rewards an unhurried approach with lingering complexity on both nose and palate.
