Pinotage 2008

R150.00R855.00

An old bush vine block that delivers our best Pinotage fruit revealing Slaley terrior. Mineral and earthy with truffle, cigar box and leather aromas. Firm but silky tannins with typical Pinotage varietal character such as coffee, toffee, cedar and pencil shavings. A complex wine that will benefit from further ageing in the bottle.
