Year after year, this is considered one of the very best luxury Pinotage bottlings produced by one of the highest reputation family owned wineries in South Africa. The Pinotage grape is a cross of Cinsault and Pinot Noir and is South Africa's signature red wine grape. This is a REALLY lush, sensuous and smooth Pinotage, with aromas and flavors of red fruits, plum and hints of dark chocolate, vanilla and sweet spices. The texture and mouthfeel on this wine are very, very smooth and elegant, partially because some of the fruit is dry-farmed, old vine (60+ year old) located on a very special small area with specific soil types that lend themselves to growing Pinotage vines and because of meticulous winemaking: specially designed shallow open top concrete fermenters, manual punchdowns, 18 months in 75% new French oak. A great wine made from a unique grape.
