Winemakers Notes: Bosstok refers to the untrellised bush-vine vineyards that make up more than half of the vineyards of our region. The Bosstok Pinotage vineyards grow close to the ground, producing lower yields of concentrated, flavorful grapes. A modern style that showcases the best Pinot Noir-like characteristics of Pinotage. Juicy bright fruits, soft tannins and a perfumed nose make this a very accessible Pinotage. We like to focus on the juicier, softer side of Pinotage by carefully managing the fermenting wine. We are able to emphasize the soft mouthfeel, perfume and expressive fruit of Pinotage. Just a touch of oak maturation means the result is delicate and pretty, with beautiful red berry flavors, a hint of cinnamon and very gentle tannins.

The sweet fruit flavors of this medium- bodied Pinotage make it an ideal match for spicy food, pizza, smoked pork and flavorful venison dishes, or delicious just by itself. Serve at a cool room temperature.

Vintage: A dry and relatively short growing season resulted in optimal preservation of aromatics in the wines. Cool evenings encouraged moisture retention in the soils and gave concentrated color to the skins.

Vineyards: The vineyards are located in the Agter-Paarl region of the Western Cape. The hardy bush-vines are planted in Malmesbury Shale soil, and produce bright fruit flavors, minerality and soft tannins.

Winemaking: Grapes were hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks over several days with frequent pump-overs. At around 8 degrees balling, the skins were removed and the wine was pressed and racked back to tank for completion of alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. 25% of the wine was barrel-matured in American oak (20% new) for 12 months. Fined and filtered before bottling.
