The grapes were hand-picked into small lug boxes in the cool early mornings of February 2018 after which they were taken to the winery for destemming, crushing, and chilling. After two days of cold maceration, fermentation commenced. Mixing was done by means of pump-overs three times daily. Due to Pinotage having a naturally thick skin and a correspondingly high phenolic content, the wine was separated from the skins immediately after fermentation and pumped directly to barrel for 13 months aging-all French oak, 15% new and the balance 2nd, - 3rd,- and 4th-fill. Bottled in June 2019 with a light polishing filtration.
Lievland, directly translated, means “love land” and there are few who come to this farm that aren’t charmed by its bucolic beauty. Twenty years ago, Lievland was considered one of South Africa’s top estates. José Conde and Tyrrel Myburgh, partners in MAN Family Wines, purchased the farm in late 2017 with the goal of resurrecting it to its former glory. Today the winery produces a range of three wines: Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chenin Blanc.
