The 2019 Pas de Nom Red is a blend of 61% Merlot, 22% Syrah and 17% Malbec all grown on the steep mid-slopes of Beau Constantia, hand-picked in the early morning hours, cooled overnight and processed to an inert stainless-steel tank after being sorted down to berry level. The tank was slowly heated to temperatures that would accommodate natural fermentation, which took place under a watchful eye and curious palate that applied punch downs and pump overs as required for just the right amount of extraction. Once fermentation was complete, free-run wine was drained to barrel via gravity, as with the wine derived from the fermented skins being basket-pressed. The wine remained in 225L French oak, of which only 6% was new, for 18 months prior to being bottled. As with all our red wines, the 2019 Pas de Nom Red is unfined and unfiltered. A bright crimson core with a ruby-red rim boasts aromas of underripe red cherries and moreish, fleshy, Merlot-born plums. Malbec and Merlot both give soft, rolling tannins, nicely balanced by the slight grittier structure and floral intensity of the Syrah to part the palate with a lasting impression and the typical tartness carried by these fruity varieties from our Cool climate region.
