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.
“Typical Intense deep purple-red colour. Intense and complex nose consisting of a variety of fruits and spices – mostly ripe plums, blackberries and black cherries, combined with the usual touch of ripe bananas and subtle tones of spicy oak characteristics! The full and complex palate ensures an immediate enjoyment of concentrated flavours that is accompanied by superbly ripe and balanced tannins. Perfectly integrated wood flavours allows for a long and complete aftertaste. A classic example of a great vintage with long maturation potential. Drink within the next two to three years and you can carry on drinking for the next 15 years if cellared well!”
