2019 David & Nadia "Topography" Pinotage, Swartland, South Africa
ABOUT THIS WINE
Dry land farmed bush vines planted in 1991 and 1998 in a combination of pure granite rock in the higher parts of the mountain (around 240 m above sea level), mixed with decomposed granite deposits lower down in the vineyards. 20% whole bunches all deposited in a concrete and vertical wooden foudre for fermentation. One punch down per day, delicately extracted and then pressed off into the old 4,000 L vertical foudre.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
David & Nadia is a family owned Swartland driven project and we focus on a spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas with different soil types throughout the Swartland, farmed by like-minded people. We are members of the Swartland Independent Producers. In the vineyard we aim for biological farming and in the cellar we work as natural as possible. It is all about the soil and vineyards after all. We believe in a pure, fresh and natural style where site and soil are at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view.
