Francois Van Niekerk Wines
South Africa - Western Cape

The grapes for the Francois van Niekerk Pinotage are sourced from two very special, but distinctly different vineyards sites:
50% from the Agter Paarl region – produces a big, heavily-structured wine.
50% from the Wellington region - lends a soft and rounded red-fruit tone to the final blend.

Each of these dryland vineyard have their roots in heavily textured shale soils, and are vinified separately before being blended together.

Both vineyards produce a low yield of 6 - 7 tons per hectare. The perfectly formed bush vines allow optimal sunlight on the grape clusters, resulting in even ripening.
