Rickety Bridge Pinotage is Pinotage to be proud of! A lovely, juicy wine with smokey notes and velvety texture. Aromas of red fruits, as well as blackberries and blueberry continue on the palate, supported by the light oaking which accentuates the fruit flavours. The tannins are soft and velvety, and the whole thing is wrapped up with subtle smokiness which leads into a lingering juicy finish.

This historic Franschhoek estate was formed out of one of the original farms that was granted to the Huguenots when they settled here, and it was first planted with vines in 1797 when it passed to Paulina De Villiers. The estate nestles against the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, close to the Franschhoek River that the old rickety bridge used to cross. In 2000, British businessman Duncan Spence acquired the estate and there has been extensive investment to create a modern cellar, which is currently overseen by Mari Kotze.

Fermentation takes place in an open tank at 24°c with two to three punch- downs daily. Malolactic fermentation takes place in 100% stainless steel tanks. Total maturation time in barrel for twelve months.
