Mellasat Vineyards’ White Pinotage 2015 is one of three favourites in France!
The “L’Heure d’Après” (meaning “after hours”) event takes place every first Friday of the month after closing time at La Cité du Vin in Bordeaux, France. The mediators choose their favourite wines and three wines are chosen from different terroirs.
Visitors are offered wines from a wide selection not only from Bordeaux but also the world. The presenters guide the visitors in discovering the wines, the beautiful landscapes and the terroir.
The White Pinotage is barrel-fermented in Romanian oak and matured for 11 months. The 2015 vintage had a total of 13% new wood. The wine is dry and delicate with underlying tropical fruits notes with a crisp freshness. The creaminess and nutty flavours support the fruit notes.
The 2015 White Pinotage received a Silver Medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2016. Although sold out at the farm, the 2017 is now available. Mellasat Vineyards was the first winery in the world to produce a White Pinotage in 2007. If you haven’t tasted a White Pinotage before, visit the Home of the White Pinotage.
We are open 7 days a week. Monday – Saturday from 09:30 – 17:30 and Sunday and public holidays from 10:00 – 16:00.
