- Simonsberg, Stellenbosch, South Africa
100% Pinotage with twelve months in French oak. Filled with delicious plum, port and prune flavours. Delicious and modern.
A top Pinotage from a top South African estate. Rich and spicy with cocoa, coffee and herby notes on both the nose and palate. The finish is long and lingering.
This wine works very well with chorizo sausages and hearty stews.
