Meinert Printer's Ink Pinotage 2016


Devon Crest vineyard outside Stellenbosch. Old, unirrigated bushvines planted on Hutton soils at 280m above sea level on south-facing slopes yield small volumes of intensely concentrated fruit. The canopy is managed to ensure minimal direct sunlight exposure and sea breezes enable slow ripening.
Cold maceration followed by a short hot fermentation (3 days) before pressing. About a third of the wine undergoes carbonic maceration, giving pure, fresh fruit. Bottled after 24 months in 225L 2nd 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels which give balance, length and poise.
