Rossouw, Gouws & Clarke, Dry Red 2020 Bottle size: 750mlSouth Africa, Swartland
'Grown by Scholtz Rossouw of Langkloof Farm on the Paardeberg (grapes from 1968 bush vines farmed organically) and made by Jurgen Gouws of Intellego. 80% of the fruit fermented whole bunch under semi-carbonic conditions and the other 20% pressed earlier and fermented as a rosé to add extra juiciness. Very attractive aromatics with notes of cherry, pomegranate and some floral perfume. The palate is light, clean and zippy with very fine tannins – has both a clarity and delicacy about it.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 90/100
'This is our Pinotage – a 52 year old bushvine vineyard, grown on Langkloof Farm using organic practices by Scholtz Rossouw. Made again by Jurgen Gouws, with 80% of the fruit fermented whole bunch under semi-carbonic conditions for 10 days. The other 20% of the fruit was pressed earlier and fermented as a rosé and blended back in after malolactic fermentation. The resultant wine has a juicier mid-palte compared with previous vintages, loads of cherry and raspberry fruit with that characteristic pomegranate tang. We absolutely adore northern Italian reds here at Ex Animo. Pinotage, weirdly enough, when made without massive extraction and from quality fruit, can remind us of a crunchy Dolcetto d’Alba. Enjoy.' – David Clarke, Ex Animo
