Skraalhans Pinotage 2022, Kaapzicht

£16.95 per bottle

About this wine

Kaapzicht Skraalhans Pinotage is a new, vibrant version of Pinotage in the Kaapzicht range which is bright, fresh and elegant.  The 2022 vintage is dominated by red fruits with classic cherry and mulberry notes. With a vibrant palate and sweet tannins, this wine has a plush and bright finish

Skraalhans is a gangly weed found in the Kaapzicht vineyards, often growing taller than the Pinotage Bush vines themselves. Kaapzicht’s hands-off approach has allowed the vineyards to shine through, giving the wine a profound sense of place.

Ageing potential: This Pinotage is accessible now as a treat with cured meats, but will also age comfortably over the next 3-5 years.

Food Pairing:   Delicious served with barbecued ostrich steaks or springbok fillet from the barbecue.

Alcohol: 12.75% ABV

    string(569) "South Africa’s very own variety, created in the early 20th century by crossing Pinot Noir and Cinsault. A variety which the home nation has taken to its collective heart, in the right hands and with gentle, delicate handling in the winery, Pinotage is a lush, fruit driven, black cherry jam and white pepper styled variety. When the focus is more on a traditional feel, extended barrel maturation can bolster the variety into creating more of a Bordelais clone. Some great examples exist, famously from Kanonkop and Kaapzicht Estate; both to be found in Stellenbosch."
