2019 | THE PIRATE OF COCOA HILL RED
In a time of seafaring and spice, pirates played in Table Bay...
Among them was Long Ben - as fierce as he was tall, he looted and pillaged and scavenged from all.
Ben fast became known for being up to no good, and so fled from the seas and gave up his loot. lie planted some vines, as was the way, and peered out towards the ocean almost every day. Long Ben would have gazed longingly at the risen of Table Bay from where our vines grow today, on Cocoa Hill.

Tasting Note by the Winemaker
The wine shows aromas of black and red fruit, pepper and a hint of spice. The palate is flavorful and well balanced with concentrated fruit, fresh acidity and fine tannins and a lingering finish.

Vineyards
The vines are planted on our Croenkloof farm on the slopes of the Stellenbosch Mountain. The soil is composed of coffee colored decomposed granite. The vines get full sun which allows for the optimum development of rich berry characters and smooth tannins in the grapes.

Winemaking
All components of this blend were fermented separately in vineyard specific batches with pump-overs for color and tannin extraction being performed five times daily. The wine was barrel matured for 12 months in French oak barrels and a small unoaked component was used to provide a fresh and lively character.

Peak drinking
From 2021 for up to 5 years.

Food Pairing
Braised oxtail, Beef bourguignon, charcuterie platter and smoked kudu Carpaccio
