Bonnievale The River Collection Pinotage 2021

Bonnievale The River Collection Pinotage 2021

This wine marries exquisite notes of ripe plums, cherries, and red berries. Together, they cascade onto the palate in soft juiciness. Fine tannin and good, mid-palate weight are hallmarks of the wine, which concludes in a long, earthy finish.

Great on its own, this wine also rises to full glory with lamb cutlets and other red meat dishes.

Bonnievale Wines gets its name from the town founded in the 1800s by visionary Scotsman Christopher Forrest Rigg. He unlocked the region’s agricultural potential and secured the roots of our community.

Our home lies east of Cape Town, in a valley long associated with excellent dairy, fruit and wine farming. Cool air from the nearby coastline ensures flavourful grapes.

Our philosophy is founded on respect and collaboration – working together and with nature. We meticulously produce and select the very best grapes from what nature and the vintage has to offer.

The seal Wine of Origin: Bonnievale is a proud declaration of this quality provided by farming families with deep understanding of this unique landscape, soils and climate; and, a broad palette of vineyards from which we select our grapes.

about the harvest: Fruit was harvested on February 19.
