MARKLEW PINOTAGE 2010

"How many Danes have heard of Pinotage? It was bred in South Africa in 1925 by the first viticultural professor in Stellenbosch, Abraham Perold. A cross between Pinot noir and Cinsaut. Deep red colour and great aromas and flavours. This great wine has had the 2008 vintage scooped up by South African Airways for their first class lounge. A huge honour for Marklew, but not so good for us. But don’t worry – I know where the back door to the winery is. Enjoy the 2007 while you can – I cant wait to showcase this awesome South African wine to Denmark." - Mathew

Winemaker Duan Britz’s notes

Opulent ripe dark fruit with firm friendly tannins. The Pinotage 2007 can be enjoyed now but will definitely improve with bottle age (up until 10 years from vintage).

Soil: Red Hutton.

Vinification/Maturation: Our Pinotage 2007 was hand picked at optimum ripeness, sorted and vinified from 10 year old dry land  bush vineyards.

A shorter fermentation and maceration period than other reds with extra plunging to enhance colour and fruit flavours. Oaked for 18 months in a selection of 60% new, 40% 2nd fill French barrels.  MLF completed in barrel.

Chemical Analysis: Alcohol – 14.0 vol%; Res. Sugar – 2.9; Acidity – 6.0; pH – 3.83
