This Pinotage is made form the cellar master’s choice Pinotage – a statement wine with excellent ageing potential. A gorgeous dark purple colour introduces the wine. The aromas are reminiscent of sweet black cherry and juicy mulberries enveloped by a fragrant cedar spice from 100% new French oak. Full-bodied with firm tannins and ripe fruit flavours. A very well crafted wine.

Suited to ossobucco or lamb bredie, stewed with waterblommetjies, Springbok fillet or mature cheeses.
