Food Suggestions

This wine pairs well with ostrich, beef fillet and lamb dishes. It also has the unique ability to pair with dishes that have elements of spice in them, such as mild chicken curries and Bobotie

In The Vineyard

Dornier’s Pinotage vines are planted on sandy, alluvial soils at a very low elevation. The site is cooled by south easterly winds in summer so providing a longer ripening period for the fruit and ensuring perfect phenolic ripeness at lower sugar levels.

In The Cellar

Bunches were destemmed and the grapes were sorted by hand in the cellar. The wine was fermented in open stainless steel tanks with gentle pump overs performed twice daily so as to facilitate softer tannins. Malolactic fermentation took place in tank and the wine spent a further 12 months aging in French oak barrels of which 10% were new.
