Jacobsdal Pinotage Case - 6 x 750ml

Jacobsdal is a boutique wine estate situated between Stellenbosch and Kuilsriver on the slopes of the hills overlooking false Bay. The production methods used on the farm are steeped in tradition and haven't changed in the four generations that the Dumas family have been creating their range of critically-acclaimed wines. Little has changed since the 1920's and today Jacobsdal is one of the only estates in the world that still produce their wines entirely by hand. At Jacobsdal something of the world of yesteryear lives on. Here dedication to soil and vine is a way of life while wine is made with minimal intervention in the traditional French way. These wines withstand the test of time and live up to the maxim handmade is well made. Vineyards: The grapes were sourced from dryland bush vines, established some 140 m above sea level. Facing in a south-westerly direction, the vineyards grow in sandy, loamy soils with a yellow clay substructure, ensuring good drainage and water retention. The vines were between 27 and 37 years old at the time of harvesting. 

Wine making: The fully ripened grapes were harvested by hand at 24 degrees celsius to 25 degrees celsius balling in February with an average yield of five tons per hector. The juice was given four to five days' skin contact while fermenting in open tanks. Fermentation occurred spontaneously from natural yeast cells on the grape skins. This procedure has been a trademark in the making of Jacobsdal wines for many years and allows for more subtle and deeper flavours with tannins less evident. The cap was regularly punched down by hand for maximum extraction of colour, flavour and tannins. Fermentation was completed in closed tanks. After spontaneous malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked from the lees and matured in small French Oak barrels for a period of 12 to 18 months before the final blend of the different barrels was made up.
