Rijks Private Cellar Pinotage 2020

Rijk’s is situated in the Tulbagh Valley, 120km North East of Cape Town. They are a family-owned estate where good wine, food, family and friends come together. Sustainably farmed with a vision for the future, the Estate continually produces award winning wines.

Focused solely on Chenin Blanc and Pinotage, Rooted deep in rich vertical shale soils and experiencing a Mediterranean climate with cool summer winds, Rijks have an ideal environment for making exceptional wines.'

Full bodied red wine. Fruit driven food wine.

Grapes were night harvested and picked by hand to retain flavours.

A 48-hour cold maceration period was given prior to fermentation to extract colour and fruit. Extraction during fermentation took place by doing manual punch downs 3 times per day. Skins were gently pressed before fermented dry. MLF took place in barrels. Matured for 22 months in 60% French and 40% American oak barrels. A total of 40% new, 30% 2nd fill and 30% 3rd fill barrels were used for ageing.

Ageing Potential: 12 Years after vintage.

This deep coloured wine shows intense black cherry, red current and slight notes of cloves on the nose. Beautiful floral tones followed by layers of dark fruits and sweet tobacco. The palate is balanced between a dense core of fruit, bright acidity and fine tannins. The finish is long and pure with delicate wood spice rounding off this exceptional Pinotage.

Enjoyed best served at 17°C.
