A clean and interesting merger of sweet red fruit- and dark fruit-aromas with red cherries and black plums most noticeable. Hints of white pepper, smokey oak and salty licorice add to the mix. The wine’s medium-bodied texture is lean and elegant with an exceptionally-friendly structure expected more from a cooler vintage than a warm one. The fresh acidity adds as much to the food friendliness of the wine as it does to its sheer drinkability.

The Hill & Dale label offers a range of accessibly-styled wines with a New World character for international appeal, created by award-winning winemaker, Guy Webber. Grapes for the Hill & Dale wines are selected from vineyards within the Stellenbosch region. Extensive vineyard management programmes are in place for each of the vineyards from which the fruit is selected. All aspects of the process are strictly governed so as to comply with the standards set for the Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) system.

Food Match:
This food-friendly, versatile wine will best complement succulent game burgers with camembert and cherry-compote toppings; biltong pizzas with blue cheese and caramelized onions. Wholesome Sheppard’s pie and traditional Bobotie will also be winners.

Area: Grapes were sourced from trellised vineyards established in soils of granitic origin. Pinotage is an variety which thrives on full sunlight and slightly warmer temperatures.
Harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand on 13 and 14 February at an average of 25.4º
Vinification: fermentation was induced with skin contact kept to a minimum and the skins being separated as soon as colour extraction was sufficient. Using selected yeast strains, fermentation took place in closed stainless-steel roto tanks at around 26°C.
Ageing: The wine was then matured in a combination of old 300-litre French, Eastern European & American oak barrels for an average of 14 months before being blended and readied for bottling.
