Winemaker’s notes:

This wine shows a complex nose of red fruits, vanilla, exotic spices, and rich dark chocolate aromas. The palate is full flavoured and smoothly textured with oriental spice, chocolate and roasted banana flavours. Our pinotage is ready to drink, but will also benefit for another 5 years’ cellaring.


Food suggestions:


Lamb-knuckle or oxtail stew with sun-dried tomatoes.
