Tololi Online Store

Regular price N$121.74

Six generations of Louws have practiced the art of winemaking at Diemersdal since the Estate passed into their hands in 1885. More than 12 decades later, Diemersdal is a well-known landmark in the lush Durbanville Valley, one of the Cape’s oldest wine regions.

Diemersdal forms part of the Wine of Origin Cape Town where cooling mists from the Atlantic Ocean roll over the vineyards every afternoon, contributing to the unique character of Diemersdal wines.

Description

Food suggestions:
Lamb-knuckle or oxtail stew with sun-dried tomatoes.

Tasting notes:
This wine shows a complex nose of red fruits, vanilla, exotic spices, and rich dark chocolate aromas. The palate is full flavoured and smoothly textured with oriental spice, chocolate and roasted banana flavours. Our Pinotage is ready to drink, but will also benefit from another 5 years’ cellaring.

Maturation:
11 months oak maturation in 30% new 225L French oak barrels.

Oenology:
The grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness. Fermentation in open-fermenters for 5-7 days at 26ºC to 28ºC. Punch through every 4 hours pressed at 5º Balling. 100% MLF completed spontaneously in tanks before the wine was racked into 225L French oak barrels.

Terroir:
The vines are rooted in deep red Hutton soils on north-facing slopes, catching the southerly breezes of summer and the frontal winds that punish the Cape from the north in winter. Cool growing conditions on exposed aspects, as well as the practise of dryland farming, sees the fruit develop slowly, drawing maximum variety expression on the vine. the result is tight bunches of small berries, ideal for making wines of structure, elegance and refinement

Awards:

2017 vintage: Gold-Veritas Wine Awards ’18
2016 vintage: Gold – Veritas Wine Awards ‘17
