Wine Description

This pinotage has aromas of oak, black fruit, grape and cherry. Some judges found it a bit closed on the nose, but think it might open up given time. The palate is where this wine really shined, with savoury, meaty and fruity notes all playing together. Supple leather, spice, coffee, smoke and blackberry tones guide the weighty palate.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) The first thing you'll notice is the wonderful mocha roast coffee bean aroma. Perfect with grilled spare ribs and savory sauces.
