Classic South African red wine from the Truter family vineyards. Pinotage started life as a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault and does exceptionally well on the mountain slopes where it enjoys granite and sandstone soils with a high clay content, good acidity and good water retention. Not to mention a lot of sunshine! Grapes are de-stemmend and fermented over 8 days before being pressed and matured in a mix of French and American oak.
In the glass
Deep crimson red with a purple rim. A juicy raspberry, intensely fruity nose which follows through on the palate and leads to spicy notes and a hint of oak. Lovely smooth finish.
