Characteristics

Medium bodied red wine. Fruit driven.

Tasting Notes

The concentrated 2018 vintage led to producing a Pinotage with a vibrant dark red colour. Aromas of beautiful red fruit with predominant cherry nuances and whiffs of early morning Cape Fynbos on the nose. These diverse aromas carry through onto a rich, velvety and complex palate supported by layers of well-rounded tannins. Gentle presence of oak
on nose and palate supports this well poised wine.
