Kaapzicht's Pinotage comes from 19-year-old bush vines planted in weathered granite soil. The vineyards are all dry land, unirrigated.

Dark depth of black plum with an opulent, slightly reductive nose of black cherry, mulberry and stewed plum. The oak is very subtle and integrated, playing to the strengths of the fruit purity and precision. Texturally there is impressive focus, balanced finesse and an elegant mouthfeel punctuated with soft supple black fruits and oak spice. A blend of 86% Pinotage, 14% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Grapes were picked at full ripeness (25ºB), fermented in stainless steel tanks and pumped over 3-4 times a day. After a light pressing the Pinotage underwent malolactic fermentation before going into 33% new French oak barrels for 18 months.
