The prodigy, by definition, refers to a young person with exceptional qualities or abilities. The same attributes that you will find in this joyous Pinotage wine.
Unlike his older siblings, the original Diemersfontein ’Coffee/Chocolate’ style Pinotage and the Diemersfontein Carpe Diem Reserve Pinotage, this wine exudes the unique, youthful and vibrant characteristics of this truly South African varietal. As the new kid on the block, the Prodigy emanate rich flavours of dark red fruit like mulberry and black berry on the nose followed by strawberry, cherry and plum on the palate all wrapped in a subtle hint of a well-balanced oak component
Pinotage grapes were harvested from various sites in Wellington at optimum ripeness, destalked, slightly crushed and vinified in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation happened over 7 days then pressed and after 30 days completed MLF in tank . The wine was racked and aged or 10 months on French oak staves.
95% Pinotage, 5% Shiraz
