Delicious delicious estate wine! Heady heady estate wine. With lively enough acid to dance off the richness. Purpley things, flowers, black cherries, and potpourri all do their darnedest to take you down but it has a lift that keeps you up. And drinking more of it. — a year ago
NOTE this should be SixtyTwo Barrels not Sixty...So totally correct. If blind tasted (which I was) I’d have said—new world slightly-better-than-average-not-expressive-but-balanced blend‽ it is tasty. And balanced if not expressive. Just fun, well made fun. It is a wine a lot of people would love and wine jerks like me would say “goooood! I’d buy it!”. It kind of puts the Pinot in Pinotage. — a year ago
WOW. Loved. And the people I was serving at a South African event loved. It is sturdy. This wine will support you. And not go away. It will feed you all the fresh red plums and raisins you need to stay healthy. Then such juiciness at large and then it will wave air on you ( in the name of medium acid and 14% abv alcohol) to keep you chill. Essentially this wine is a side piece. Keep it in your life boo, — 3 years ago
Fabulously surprising! This wine is one of those warm robust bear humans who wraps you in a hug that doesn’t smother you, it frees you. It’s fresh. Oodles of dark berries and plums plus vanilla and a very herbal earthy thing and something like leather. So very very good. — a year ago
Smells and tastes like expensive winemaking aka the new french oak is rife but you wanna know‽ I don’t mind. It makes this Pinotage nummicious (industry lingo). It. Is. Friendly. And tasty. Let us parallel it to to my unabashed love for Taylor Swift. Is it designed for all to love? Sure. Does it have a hearty that wants the best behind it? Yes! A lot and it fucking rocks. Not sure of this wine’s politics. But.
I love it even though it clearly wants the masses to buy in. This is not eccentric or out of the box Pinotage but it is excellence. — a year ago
