Tasting Notes
2008 Michelangelo Awards - Silver Medal
This wine has a nice dark colour and a typical Pinotage nose of banana and lots of Rooibos tea. It is full bodied, displays spice and pepper on the tongue, but is soft and smooth with a lingering aftertaste. The fruit and wood flavours are well integrated, making it a ready to drink wine now but delicious in five years.
