A fruitier style pinotage. Very fresh (still). Strawberry, celery, and a hint of banana. Will age another 10yrs gracefully.

If I could only drink this red wine for the rest of my life I’d be happy. Bought back from SA. Now to find a UK supplier....

Thick. Dark fruit. Good tannins and earthy flavors. Blindfolded I would think this was a Syrah.

Superb wine. Paired well with high quality steak. Only complaint a bit heavy but it wears the percentage well (14.5 percent)
