This fruit-driven Pinotage offers “a good, juicy glass of wine”. The winemakers handled it very gently in the cellar because they wanted to preserve its generous aromas of black cherries, clove and raspberry jam. This wine offers a smooth and juicy palate with ripe mulberries, and hints of tobacco and spice from gentle oaking. Following on from this initial fruit and spice, it has an appealingly savoury finish. Excellent with smoked tofu dishes.
Built in 1825, the scenic Franschhoek mountain pass boasts the oldest stone bridge still in use in South Africa. This unique variety, Pinotage, is a fitting tribute to this historic landmark.
