Earthbound wines represent a ground breaking initiative that promotes transformation in the South African wine industry. For every ton of grapes harvested, a premium is paid to the farm workers. A joint body, representing the workers decides on how premiums will be spent, funding community upliftment such as a recreation room, computer facilities, skills development and study loans.
Papkuilsfontein is a member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative to protect the wealth of biodiversity found in the Cape Floral Kingdom by rehabilitating land on wine farms to indigenous habitat.
Earthbound Pinotage was pressed and then racked into stainless steel tanks. It was then racked to barrel, where it spent nine months. A combination of 300-litre American (54%) and French (46%) oak was used, with the American oak used to impart sweet, vanilla flavours.
Bouquet: Sweet plums with caramel, vanilla sweet spice.
Palate: Juicy with concentrated red fruits and traces of smoke
and excellent integration of fruit and wood with a lingering aftertaste.
Food pairing: Great with game casseroles, red meat dishes,
robust cheeses and dark chocolate.
Analysis: pH 3.67 / TS 5.44 / AA 14.36 / RS 2.84
