Bosstok refers to the untrellised bush-vine vineyards that make up more than half of the vineyards of our region. The bosstok Pinotage vineyards grow close to the ground, producing lower yields of concentrated, flavourful grapes.
A modern style that showcases the best Pinot Noir-like characteristics of Pinotage.
Juicy bright fruits, soft tannins and a perfumed nose make this a very accessible Pinotage.
From the winemaker:
We like to focus on the juicier, softer side of Pinotage by carefully managing the fermenting wine. We are able to emphasise the soft mouthfeel, perfume and expressive fruit of Pinotage. Just a touch of oak maturation means the result is delicate and pretty, with beautiful red berry flavours, a hint of cinnamon and very gentle tannins.
The sweet flavours of the Pinotage makes the wine hold its own with most poultry or bold meat dishes - even spicy curries. And it's the best accompaniment to summer barbeque we know!
