AA Badenhorst Sk'Windjiesvlei Tinta Barocca 2018


Product Notes

Vineyard: This vineyard was planted in 1962 on decomposed granite soils of the Paardeberg. The vineyard has South East exposition and is 5.5 ha in extent – many of the vines are missing through the years of struggle. We layer long shoots into the ground on an annual basis to fill in the missing gaps. These shoots then form roots underground and the new vine is then an extension of its “mother”.

Vinification and élevage: the grapes are sorted meticulously in the vineyard and transported in small picking boxes to a refrigerated container where they are left overnight to cool. Half of the bunches are de-stemmed and fermented in a concrete tank while being pumped over once daily. When fermentation is almost completed, the tank is pressed and the must is moved to 2000 litre vats for 11 months.

Analysis: Alcohol 13.86 vol% Residual Sugar 2.3 g/l pH 3.68 Total Acidity (Tartaric) 5.3 g/l Total sulphur 68 ppm

This is a very important vineyard in the Swartland because of its age and quality of the wine. Tinta Barocca has found a good home here in the Swartland and grows well here providing a wonderful freshness of fruit and tannin in many blends.
