Pella ‘Thomas Se Boland’ Pinotage 2014

12% abv

Intense aromas of ripe plums and mulberries follow through onto a concentrated, rich, highly extracted palate ending in a pleasant, lengthy finish.

One of the gems of the Cape, rich in heritage; as one of the oldest blocks of Pinotage in South Africa. A Single Vineyard, bushvine, planted in 1960. This vineyard was named after Thomas, the person who used to work with horse and plough in this vineyard on the old Canettevallei Farm. Hand harvested, sorted and de-stemmed. Yielding less than 3 tons per hectare. Cold soak for ten days at 8’C and fermented up to a maximum of 30’C. Manual punch downs and basket pressing. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Only 900 bottles total production.

Towards the end of the Stellenboschkloof road, immediately before the grand entrances to both DeMorgenzon and Jordan, lies the unassuming signage for Canettevallei. What lies beyond is a humble wine and lavender farm owned by the equally modest Daniël de Waal and his wife, Ingrid.
The de Waal family have made wine for nine generations – six of them in the kloof. It’s Daniël’s brother, Pieter, who now owns Uiterwyk, the De Waal property acquired in 1864. Canettevallei itself dates to 1682 and once formed part of the Ou Kaapse Hardepad which historically connected Cape Town to the hinterland. Today, it is the home to Pella and Mount Sutherland Wines which are founded on small-batch winemaking from specially selected single site vineyards around the Cape.
Daniël is also the sole winemaker vinifying grapes from the newly established Sutherland-Karoo region, which he pioneered by planting vines at the foot of the Sneeuberg in the Roggeveld Mountains, back in 2004. At an elevation of 1,500 metres and situated some 350kms from the Indian Ocean, this is the highest and coolest wine growing region on the African continent.
The soils here are deep, clay and scali (a local word for shale). In contrast, most of the Pella wines are sourced from Stellenbosch and which incorporates some of the de Waal family vineyards, including a parcel planted by Dannie and Koffie de Wet in 1950, believed to be the oldest Pinotage vineyard in the world.
