The Red Bad Brothers wine is lightly aged in wood, giving it a balanced character. With soft tannins with fruit flavors, it has become a drinkable wine that is guaranteed to please. The Pinotage grapes grow on an 18 year old vineyard on a slightly southerly slope. The soil consists of clay and lime, which allows the grape to develop special properties.
The farm of the Goedwacht winery has been owned by the Du Toit family for three generations. Today, the family owns 180 hectares of vineyards with a diversity of terroirs, soil types and microclimates. This makes the wines distinctive and particularly elegant. The vineyards are located in the Breede River Valley in the Robertson district, near Cape Town. It has a warm and dry climate which makes it ideal for viticulture. Together with winemaker Christiaan van Tonder, the Du Toits strive to produce the highest quality wine that is appreciated, shared and discussed by wine enthusiasts around the world.
During the first week, the Pinotage grapes are carefully harvested. This is done at night to maintain the delicious freshness. The grapes are then taken to the winery where, after a cold soaking period of 2 days, a fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. The fermentation temperature is controlled at 25 degrees. The wine is then pressed and transferred to another tank for the 3-week malolactic fermentation. Finally, the wine is aged for 3 months in French oak barrels before being bottled.
As soon as we pour this dark red wine, we can immediately enjoy the delicious fruity aromas of strawberries and forest fruit. Thanks to the short wood bearing, this is complemented by a light wood touch. In addition, the well-known smoky aroma of Pinotage is also present in this wine in a beautiful way. In the taste a fruity but especially soft wine with round tannins. A good drinkable wine that will certainly not disappoint you.
