More information about Three Days on Skins Pinotage - Markus Schneider


From the sun of South Africa to the elegance of the Palatinate: discover the Markus Schneider Pinotage Three Days on Skins

Markus Schneider, known for his innovative wines from the Palatinate, Germany, has created this unique red wine in cooperation with Danie Steytler from South Africa. Their joint vision was to reinterpret the traditional South African grape variety Pinotage, integrating methods from the Palatinate.

For a detailed look at the Markus Schneider Pinotage Three Days on Skins, it is worth exploring the unique combination of tradition and innovation that characterizes this project. The wine is symbolic of the creativity and pursuit of quality that Markus Schneider and Danie Steytler bring to their collaboration. The careful handling of the Pinotage grape and the innovative vinification method, including the short maceration period and maturation in Riesling barrels, are exemplary of the approach of pushing boundaries and daring to try something new.

At the same time, every sip reflects the deep connection with the terroir and the dedication to craftsmanship. The limited edition underlines the exclusive character of the wine and makes every bottle a special pleasure experience. The recommendation to decant the wine shows the care required to develop the wine's full potential and appreciate its complexity.

The Markus Schneider Pinotage Three Days on Skins presents itself in a deep, vibrant purple red that immediately catches the eye. On the nose, it unfolds a complex aroma characterized by ripe plums, sour cherries and a variety of spices. There are also subtle roasted aromas, which are the result of ageing in used Riesling barrels. On the palate, the wine is at its best: powerful yet elegant, with a perfect balance of ripe tannins and lively acidity. The fruity notes of dark berries and plums are complemented by a fine spiciness that rounds off the long-lasting finish.

Vinification of the Three Days on Skins Pinotage

A key element that makes the Markus Schneider Pinotage so special is the innovative approach to vinification. The grapes only spend three days on the skins - a method that not only gives the wine its name, but also its unique structure and depth. After maceration, the wine matures for eight months in used wooden barrels previously used for Riesling. This technique gives the wine its characteristic roasted aromas and a subtle complexity that sets it apart from traditional Pinotage wines.
