This classic South African Pinotage has generous red berry fruit and soft tannins. Perfect with pork, lamb chops or burgers.
Our emblem of a Pinotage vine leaf shows the distinctive tooth-shaped gap between the first two lobes. Winemaker Beyers Truter, world renowned for his Pinotage wines, was named International Winemaker of the Year at the 1991 International Wine and Spirit Competition held in London. Pinotage is unique to South Africa. It was created in Stellenbosch by cross-pollinating Pinot Noir and Hermitage (Cinsaut) cultivars. The grapes derive from unirrigated bush vines of 20 - 40 years old in the famous Stellenbosch wine region. Full bodied and complex, this wine embodies the best features of Pinotage. The blackberry and cassis flavours are well balanced with the subtle wood maturation characer. It can be enjoyed now, but the smooth richness will develop even further for up to five years. Ideal with venison, red meat, curries and spicy foods.
Heavy savoury oak aromas combined with pencil shavings and hints of dark fruits, plum and cassis. This wine shows great structure and balance. Initial Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics are followed up with a spicy finish from the Shiraz. With great tannin structure and a strong backbone this wine has excellent ageing potential.
Exceptional cassis and cloves, with a touch of dried herb and vanilla aromas. The palate deligths with elegant flavours of blueberries and cherries followed by well-structured and firm tannins.
