Klippenkop, a winery in Robertson. The word klippen is a geographical term for an outcrop of rock, whilst kop in Afrikaans translates as either a hillock or a head.
The fruit is sourced from 35 specially selected grape growing families in the Robertson Valley. The Pinotage vineyards are grown in the lime rich karoo soils with fairly high clay content. This soil enables growers to use regulated deficit irrigation to control vine vigour and berry size. Pinotage quality benefits a lot if quite severe water deficit are induced between berry set and veraison.
A full-bodied red wine with concentrated dark fruit flavours and a hint of smoke. Soft and smooth with a lot of power this is a robust wine with a smooth finish.
Enjoy now with roast beef, guinea fowl, roast chicken, stews, lamb, pizza and pasta. It also works with a BBQ Pot Noodle and smokey bacon crisps!
