  • Tasting Note: Vibrant Pinotage, the South African grape variety, here packed with black fruit - blackberry, black plum, blueberry - overlaid with a scattering of spice.
  • Food Matching: Pairs well with marinated lamb or cajun-spiced fish. For a vegetarian option, try with aubergine dishes, grilled mushrooms and dark leafy greens.
  • Vineyard: Old, unirrigated bushvines planted on deep, rich Hutton soils at 280m above sea level on south-facing slopes yield smaller volumes (5 – 6 tons/ha) of intensely concentrated fruit. The vineyard canopy is managed to ensure minimal direct sunlight exposure of the bunches and as such enhance the finer, elegant nuances of the Printer’s Ink Pinotage. The unobstructed proximity to False Bay allows for cooling afternoon sea breezes which enable a slower ripening period and improved evolution of flavour in the bunches. Regenerative agriculture will see these vineyards thrive for the next 50 years.
  • Vinification: Cold maceration of 10 days at under 10ºC followed by a short hot fermentation (3 days) before pressing. About a third of the wine underwent carbonic maceration so as to enhance the finer nuances of the Pinotage. Bottled after 24 months in 225L, 2nd, 3rd and 4th fill French oak barrels.
