Tasting Notes

The red gravel soil in our hallmark Pinotage blocks gives these vineyards their name — Rooiland (red land).
Pinotage and its rich history is rooted in the Bottelary Hills, and with this wine we honour this unique South African cultivar in its classic style: intense, plush, and opulent. A full-bodied dry red wine.

Ageing Potential

This Pinotage is accessible now, but will also age comfortably for the next 5 years.
