Tasting Notes

Intense plum colour with saturated, opaque centre; ripe layers of mulberry, plums, black cherry and dark chocolate/mocha tones, a trace of minerality and forward oak aromatics add more complexity; boisterous display of Pinotage character with firm tannins and good acidity bodes well for some 3 to 5 years maturation
Elsie Pels - Cape Wine Master

Ageing Potential

Drink now and enjoy the vibrant youthfulness. You will be well rewarded with increased complexity and integration by cellaring for 2 - 4 years.
