Abundance of fruit on the first taste with well integrated oak flavours at the end. A wine with big structure, intense fruit, great balance and a pleasant mocha finish. This big Pinotage will keep well in the bottle for 15 years and pairs lovely with game dishes that include Kudu, Springbok or Oryx.

About The Harvest
Sufficient winter rains ensured stress free vineyards until harvest. A cool growing and long ripening season together with smaller berries and crop size resulted in wines with an abundance of colour and fruit. One of the great vintages of the Cape.
