Happy International Pinotage Day. Here is a gorgeous Pinotage to celebrate with.
Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.
Nice nose of black currants, cooked cherries, oak, licorice, chocolates, vanilla, violets, coffee, Mediterranean spices, peppercorn, herbs, earth and dark chocolates.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with black plums, black cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco leaf, coke, dark roast coffee, earth, light vegetables and pencil lead.
Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.
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 thought is was a nice crisp citrus with good body and acidity. It actually held up well with a pork chop and sauerkraut. — 9 days ago
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. — 8 days ago
Fabulously flavoursome stone fruits with balanced acidity, golden honey colour and a long finish.
Just terrific Chenin — 2 days ago
A great Chardonnay! The oakiness does come through first, then the rest is nicely balanced and has a depth and length. Happily buy this again Majestic £9.99? — 12 days ago
Drank it a bit late, light amber in color. Still, very delicious! Paired it with shrimp and lobster ravioli in a garlic, butter, tarragon white wine sauce. — 6 days ago
