Aaldering Estate Pinotage Blanc 2017
Aaldering Estate Pinotage Blanc 2017
Harvest 2017 started 2 weeks later than 2016 on the23rd of January 2017. What started off as a very dry
season, stayed rather cool in comparison with the previous vintage. We had very little rain, but the
climatic conditions were very favorable with cooler days that helped with flavor and color production.
Grapes were harvested on two separate occasions and both early in the morning. The first part was
harvested at 22.5 degrees Balling and the second harvesting took place at 27 degrees Balling. All grapes
were cooled down the day before and whole bunch pressed to reduce color extraction and create a near
Champagne colored wine. Juice was settled and then inoculated with selected yeast strains (VL3 & X16)
and then fermented in stainless steel. The wine was left on the lees for 4 months and bottled short after
to protect its freshness.

Aging Potential
Already drinking beautifully but will cellar and mature well for another three to five years.
Ideal serving temperature between 8-10°C/50-54°F.

Food Matches
This Pinotage Blanc can be drunk in multiple occasions, also as an aperitif. Food and wine pairing can be
found with seared Tuna, Creamy mussels, a Caprese Salad or a fish dish like Yellowtail amongst others.
