House of Mandela – Phumla – Pinotage

About the wine

This powerful Pinotage has a deep onyx purple colouring. The nose shows vibrant flavours of plums, red cherries and dark chocolate. The palate is broad and generous with mouthfuls of dark plums, coffee and supple liquorice tones adds to the complexity. The tannins are firm but accessible and will ensure beautiful age-ability up to 5 years from vintage.

Red Grapes



Western Cape



Winemaking process

The grapes were handpicked, lightly crushed and moved to open top stainless steel tanks where the must underwent overnight maceration at 15 °C. Cultivated yeast strains were added to the tanks and fermentation temperatures were kept between 26 and 29 °C until all the sugar was converted into alcohol.  Regular punch downs were completed every six hours. The wine was matured in French oak for about 13 months.
