Raka Pinotage 2004

Michelangelo Awards 2006 - Gold Medal
Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show 2006 - Silver
This wine has a nice dark colour and a typical Pinotage nose with lots of banana. It is full bodied, displays spice and pepper on the tongue, but is soft and smooth with a lingering aftertaste. The fruit and wood flavours are well integrated, making it a ready to drink wine now but delicious in five years.
