Farmhouse Malbec Blend 2017

My second bottle of this #malbec #pinotage #cinsault blend - still like it a lot for the price. Blackberry jam, cassis, slight leather, cocoa aroma; less of the nail polish aroma once it airs out. Bitter cocoa, coffee notes along with the fruit and lush acidity and neat tannins fading into a long finish. #wsjwineclub — 2 months ago

Tart cherries and blackberries and touch of VA on the nose. Cracked pepper and cedar smoke on the palate. Really good. Not showing the typical, smoked meat and prophylactic aromas of a #pinotage but perhaps that’s a good thing. — 5 months ago

@Delectable Wine this is the 2015 Rijk’s Cape Winemakers Guild Pinotage.

Our first time every at the Cape Winemakers Guild Auction and we will make sure to come back! (Tasting was on 9/28/18).

Thirty-fifth wine at the Friday Auction Tasting for the Cape Winemakers Guild and the twenty-third red wine. This is made up of 100% Pinotage by Pierre Wahl with fruit from Tulbagh. Aged for 22 months in a mix of new and second fill French oak barrels. Only 60 cases produced with 40 being auctioned in 2018.

Dark purplish ruby red. Some classic Pinotage notes on the nose with some smoky and savory elements, dark berries, purple flowers and slightly burnt rubber. Medium plus tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Big palate full of blackberries, black cherries, cedar and baking spices. Long and lingering palate with great mouthfeel. Drink till 2030.

$$$$ - Tasted at the Cape Winemakers Auction. Average bid at auction was R9,670.00 ($113.75 a bottle) a case. Highest bid was R12,600.00 ($148.21 a bottle) and lowest bid was R7,800.00 ($91.75 a bottle).

Interesting wine from #southafricanwine #southafrica but #pinotage is an invader grape and it permiates through this blend too much in my opinion. And yet interesting invention and has freshness and texture — a year ago

Disappointing. Smells like smoked meat and mezcal. Literally. Iodine and ripe plums. Weird. #pinotage #bordeauxblend #southafricanwine — 4 months ago

Completely agree @Martin Sher I never had one that I enjoyed. Someone prove us wrong with a good recommendation.

Hi there! Not pretending to be wine guru but you shouldnt expect pinot noir offspring some solid stuff. But there are a lot light body enjoying wines. What I had 5days ago is Survivor Pinotage 2017. Maybe not 90 score but close to it. Cheers!

I’ve been told that Spioenkop 1900 is the best Pinotage around.

Farmhouse Malbec Blend 2017

Once it’s opened up, this dark #malbec #pinotage #cinsault blend presents a deep well of blackberry and cassis fruit aromas plus a slight nail polish scent which I find pleasant as it’s subtle. Less fruit than you expect on the palate, some cocoa and bitter coffee flavors towards the end trailed by soft light tannins; juicy acidity throughout. Yum! #wsjwineclub — 6 months ago
