Fat Bastard Pinotage

Pinotage, a truly South African grape, originated from a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsaut.  The FAT Bastard Pinotage was made from specially selected grapes from our ripe harvest resulting in a wine which displays intense fruit flavour and character.

 

All fruit was hand-harvested and gently pressed to retain these expressive aromas and flavours.  The wine was aged in small oak barrels to add greater weight and complexity.

 

The nose of this wine shows ripe plum and banana with a lingering impression of chocolate and plum pudding.

Goats Do Roam Red

One afternoon, at harvest time, my mischievous son Jason and his friend Justin let the goats out of their tower and sent them for a walkabout amongst the vines. As in the legend of the Yemeni goat herder, whose roaming flock first discovered the joys of coffee beans, our goats picked out the best and tastiest fruit. Their choice serves as our inspiration for this wine, blended from juicy, full flavoured varietals with a bouquet of red fruit and suble spice. Goats do Roam will bring joy to any occasion.

Meerlust Red

This wine was produced in limited quantities from young vines on the historic Meerlust Estate and will benefit from further ageing.

The wine has an intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim; bright and vivacious in the glass, youthful.

The nose is expressive with powerful cassis, plum, exotic spice and hints of floral aromas.

On the palate the wine is medium-bodied with intense flavours of crushed black fruit, cassis, vanilla and dark chocolate.

The tannins are soft and silky, the acidity fresh, the flavour profile focused and linear.

The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste

Ageing Potential:  12 - 15 years from vintage date.

Blend Information:  52% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot
