A very special wine – 100% Pinotage, blended from best barrels from about 8…10 best pinotage producers of South Africa: Kanonkop, Beyerskloof, Lanzerac, L’Avenir, Delheim and Simonsig in most of vintages. Grangehurst, Wildekrans and Rhebokskloof included also in some, and Rijks for younger vintages as well. Older vintages were available only from a special auction, sold out in one day.
“A wine characterized by a rich violet–red colour and a nose that hints of black cherry and toasted savoury spice. The product of a dry hot vintage that brings about pronounced earthy flavours together with smooth cloves, sundried tomatoes and dried herbs. This wine suggests a palate of dark chocolate and chilli underpinned with soft leather aromas. The perfectly intertwined tannins and oak flavours suggests a wine with great ageing potential if stored in a dark and cool atmosphere.”
