PINOTAGE – SINGLE VINEYARD
Incredible rich black red colour-superb balance. Concentrated dense fruit, great complexity for a 2016 and it is just so drinkable already.
It is a wine which want to be tasted again and again.Good but not overwhelming concentration of wood with lots of black and red cherry and nice hints of tobacco. Nice, elegant tannins makes this wine perfectly nice and firm. Should get better for another 12 years plus due to its perfect balance.
