New Wave Pinotage: Wolf and Woman 2022

New Wave Pinotage

Wolf and Woman 2022

Jolandie Fouché launched her own label, Wolf and Woman, in 2020 and she is ‘quickly taking her place among the most exciting of the so-called new wave movement’, notes Christian Eedes. Her Pinotage is particularly striking, with Tim Atkin MW calling the 2021 ‘a wine for lovers of red Burgundy on a budget’.

Jolandie’s newly released 2022 Pinotage is ‘gorgeous’ and ‘just so pleasurable’, writes Christian. It exhibits enticing perfume and bright fruit, yet is poised and composed. The palate is crunchy and fresh with focused, deftly handled tannins and a bone-dry, energetic finish. It joins Ashbourne, B Vintners, Scions of Sinai, Illimis and Radford Dale in celebrating the unique fruit and tannin profile Pinotage can offer – as an alternative to other successful bolder styles.

The Wolf and Woman Pinotage 2022 is overwhelmingly from a 1973 Paardeberg vineyard, with 15% whole-bunch fermentation adding some spice and gentle tannin extraction. This is a small-batch production and very little is available.
