Kaapzicht Skraalhans Pinotage 2022

Kaapzicht Skraalhans Pinotage 2022

R165,00

Skraalhans is a gangly weed found in the Kaapzicht vineyards, often growing taller than the bush vines themselves. Kaapzicht’s hands-off approach has allowed the vineyards to shine through, giving the wine a profound sense of place. This new, vibrant version of Pinotage is bright, fresh and elegant.

About the Wine Estate

Kaapzicht is a 4th generation family farm, wine is their passion, their livelihood and their life. Their wines are grown on old weathered granite soils on the north-western slopes of the Bottelary Hills (warm direct sunlight) , 30 km from the Atlantic Ocean (cool sea breezes) and have thus a perfect combination of everything needed to create full bodied, fruity wines. On 190 ha (162 ha under vineyards) they grow 70 % red cultivars, (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinotage, Cinsaut, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Pinot Noir) and 30 % white cultivars (mainly Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, some Muscat d'Alexandrie and even less Chardonnay). A beautiful farm with a marvellous story behind each wine, a must visit on your next trip to the Stellenbosch Winelands.
