AV 15.59 | RS 2.8 | TA 5.7 | PH 3.75

WINEMAKER | Dewald Huisamen

Produced from a 13-year-old high-density bush vine vineyard planted on shale-rich topsoil, and a trellised 9-year-old vineyard planted on iron-rich “koffie-klip” soil. Both vineyards were hand-harvested at optimum ripeness. After undergoing a short cold soak period, grapes were fermented separately in open-top fermenters using different yeast strains, with a combination of punch-downs and pump-overs. After alcoholic fermentation, the bush vine component was transferred directly to the barrels to complete malolactic fermentation. The trellised component completed malolactic fermentation in stainless steel before racking.

The Brink Family Vineyards Pinotage 2019 shows dark fruit aromas with a rich, ripe roundness on the palate. The intensity of this wine promotes and suggests good longevity potential.

Beautifully poised and elegant…
