Dense, opaque plum colour leading to a slightly paling rim. Sumptuous Pinotage expression with intense layers of spiced berries, damson and showy oak flavours; powerful and bold with tightly knit tannin structure supporting generous fruit; delicious and well rounded with a lingering finish. This serious wine will handsomely repay 3-5 years cellaring to reveal presently hidden depths.
