Clos Malverne Pinotage Reserve Stellenbosch 2016 (6 x 75 cl )
Clos Malverne practices a careful “handmade” style of winemaking, with minimum interference by the winemaking staff, resulting in elegant wines, which are expressive of their terroir. We are one of only a handful of wineries in the world that remain true to the traditional and time honoured way of using a Basket Press. Basket pressing is one of the oldest methods of pressing grapes, the Ancient Greeks and Romans developed it, later perfected by the French, Basket presses were one of the earliest styles of a mechanical press, and using a basket press means that it is extremely time consuming the results are soft, elegant wines of great complexity.
The wine has a dark plum colour. It shows a ripe berry character complimented by vanilla and spicy flavours full bodied, ready for drinking now, will also benefit from bottle ageing for another 5 years.
