False Bay Bush Vine Pinotage: A Delicious and Sustainable South African Red Wine

Introduction

False Bay Bush Vine Pinotage is a richly fruited yet savoury and satisfying red wine from South Africa. Made from 100% Pinotage grapes grown sustainably in Stellenbosch, False Bay Pinotage is crafted using traditional methods, including spontaneous fermentation with wild yeast and ageing in large French oak casks. This wine is the perfect example of a South African Pinotage wine.

What to Expect from Pinotage Wines

Pinotage is a red wine grape variety that is unique to South Africa. This grape is a hybrid of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut, known for its spicy, earthy flavours and full-bodied character. Pinotage wines can vary widely in style, from fruity and easy-drinking to complex and full-bodied. The flavour profile of Pinotage wines can include notes of blackberry, plum, menthol, tobacco, leather, and spice.

The Making of False Bay Bush Vine Pinotage

False Bay Pinotage is made using sustainably-farmed Pinotage grapes that are hand-harvested and fermented spontaneously with wild yeast. The wine is then aged in large French oak casks to create a rich, full-bodied flavour profile. Nadia Barnard, the talented young Cellarmaster at Waterkloof winery, oversees the entire grape-to-bottle process to ensure that this wine is of the highest quality.
