With a lack of sufficient rainfall in the winters of 2015 and 2016 leading up to the vintages of 2016 and 2017, we saw the effect of droughts, combined with heat waves during vintage. For this good reason, Pinotage is called the “farmer’s grape” because of its earlier ripening character which allows us to harvest before heat waves, ensuring some freshness in our wines. We harvested the Pinotage vineyards right in the middle of January of 2017, before any of our whites, and matured them on the skins for three weeks in total during fermentation. By the time that the rest of our reds are harvested, all our Pinotage wines would already be in barrel, going through malolactic fermentation.
