The grapes were painstakingly hand-sorted and then destemmed into stainless steel fermenters for a cold soak. Fermentation on the skins lasted for six days at 12°C, with one gentle punch-down per day to wet the cap. This is an ‘orange wine’ without the orange color, partly due to the variety, but mostly because oxygen was kept at bay during fermentation, to prevent the must from browning unnecessarily. The almost
complete fermenting must be gently pressed using a basket press and fermentation was finished in neutral 228-liter Burgundy barrels, where 20% underwent malolactic conversion before the cellar got too cold in autumn.

Bruce Jack Wines is made up of a small, dynamic team that aims to celebrate authenticity and provenance, not just in the wine they craft, but in everything they do. Head winemakers Bruce Jack and Marlize Beyers have worked together for over two decades, since 2002, and both have extensive experience in many winemaking regions around the world. Human culture started at the tip of Africa, despite it being ‘off the charts’, so it is fitting that something as culturally rooted as wine should thrive there, inspiring the ‘Off the Charts’ wine range, crafted from grape varieties and regions that are South Africa’s viticultural cornerstones. The labels draw inspiration from the untamed majesty of the wilderness and the symbolic Basotho blanket. In 2023, Bruce Jack was featured for the fourth consecutive year in the World’s Most Admired Wine Brands, an accolade awarded by Drinks International.
