The Bernard Series Bush Vine Pinotage 2016
This Pinotage is a sensual rendition of South Africa’s signature indigenous variety. Hand-harvested from low yielding, unirrigated bush vines, with black cherry, mulberry and raspberry fruit, an earthy minerality and beautiful oak integration. In the Vineyard: The grapes used to make this Pinotage come from a prized 43-year-old bush vine block, where the vines grow in weathered granite soils with small yields. Very precise shoot thinning and green harvesting is performed to maintain the best quality and balance. Grapes are hand-picked at optimal ripeness.
