Tasting Notes

Very deep plum coloured rim with a dense, opaque centre. Inspired Pinotage with deep layers of rich black fruit, mulberry and spiced plums supported by beautifully integrated oak flavours; harmonious, powdery tannins give definition to the multi-layered fruit; richly textured, yet elegant with the balance to age beautifully.
Elsie Pels - Cape Wine Master

Ageing Potential

Could be enjoyed now if decanted or cellared for up to 10 years.
