Kaapzicht Steytler Pinotage 2008

Kaapzicht Steytler Pinotage 2008

Saturated plum colour with purply black, opaque heart; focused Pinotage expression with intense layers of brooding black fruit and opulent oak woven into a rich tapestry of flavour; muscular tannins add depth and balance to plush fruit; firm structure and rich texture will evolve beautifully with some 5 - 8 years cellaring.
