Winemaker's Notes

One of the best vintages over the last 20 years. A deep red full bodied Pinotage with complex black and red berry flavours followed by a hint of banana. Balanced oak and tannin flavours that will integrate over the next few years. A classic rather then New World style wine that will last at least 10-12 years in the bottle.
