This is a delicious Pinotage from South Africa. Drinking very nicely now, with a great mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity and good by itself or with food.
Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show some tannins, so be patient.
This 8 year old is peaking now. I've had this vintage 5 years ago, and decided to let it mature for a while. What a great call, as it made such a big difference.
Rich and expressive. Tasty and interesting. Just Delicious.
I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.
Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

I haven’t had a new world cab Sauvignon in ages. This maker gets some press as she is working in a former apartheid state, but really this wine deserves kudos: most of all contains tension & a wirey ness that belies its cab Sauvignon credentials. Serious chocolate notes. Drink it on cold room temp side & you will be happy. Good wet winter night wine. — 10 days ago
