Product Description:

"Pinotage is one of the more challenging varieties to work with. The naturally firm tannins need to be carefully managed and the fruit profile respected. We’ve bottled this 2015 vintage earlier than usual, as we felt that the fruit is at a very expressive stage and the tannin shave already softened sufficiently in barrels. Time in bottle will certainlybea help to express the fantastic Pinotage characteristics and ultimately a very rewarding wine." -Winemaker
