Vineyard info/Viticulture

Pinotage grapes were sourced from the Kasteelsig vineyard which is owned by Painted Wolf Pack members Billy (Guillermo) and Penny Hughes. The grapes are organically farmed and will be fully organically certified in the 2013 vintage. The site is primarily red Glenrosa soil with some Oakleaf – both shale rich duplex soils. The vineyards are irrigated. Kasteelsig vineyard supplies grapes for some of South Africans top boutique wines. Yields are round 8 tons to the hectare.

Vinification

The grapes were hand picked into small baskets and taken to the cellar where they were hand sorted, destalked and gently crushed. The wine fermented in small open fermented bins with 4 punch downs per day. Before the wine was totally dry, the wines was pressed and placed in oak barrels to complete alcoholic and malolactic fermentation.
