Ripe mulberry and strawberry flavors are complimented by subtle undertones of dried herbs in this wine. This Pinotage has a juicy mouth feel with supple, sweet tannins.


Vineyards for this wine are older and planted in sandy, clay soils. The wine is made from a combination of Paarl and Wellington fruit.

Due to its thick and tannic skin, colour is extracted from the Pinotage grapes within the first couple of days of fermentation and the wine is pressed early.
