Tanagra Pinotage Blanc de Noir 2020 big This delightful Tanagra Blanc de Noir is made from our Pinotage, a varietal that lends itself particularly well to a Blanc de Noir.

It is perfect to enjoy now or within the next 2 – 3 years.

Vinification Early morning hand selected harvest to optimize grape quality at 22.5 ballings. The grapes are cooled down at 9 degrees overnight. Whole bunches are processed via a mash pump to gently squeeze the berries into the inert wine press. Free run juice is separated from the stalks and skins, with only 5% of gently pressed juice. Minimal skin contact is given via this process. The juice is clarified, naturally, overnight. The clarified juice is moved to the next vessel where spontaneous fermentation takes place. Fermentation is done at a temperature of 14 - 16 degrees Celsius until dry fermented. After fermentation the wine is kept afterwards for at least 3 months on the lees before stabilization . Done with minimal interference through vinification.

Tasting notes This Pinotage Blanc de Noir shows an appealing salmon-colour. Bright red fruit, strawberry and red berries. The palate is fresh and crisp, yet with a pleasant hint of fruit sweetness. Well balanced.
