The grapes were sourced from dryland bush vines. Spontaneous fermentation from natural yeast cells. Intense ruby colour, strong berry aromas, Bordeaux-style structured in the mouth; groundnuts, autumn leaves and forest berries.
Try with grilled red meat, game casseroles.
About the winery:
The winery Jacobsdal is situated between Stellenbosch and the Kuils River, on the descent of the hills that look down on False Bay, in the southwest corner of the Stellenbosch wine region. The current winemaker and owner, Cornelis Dumas, now assisted by his son Hannes, makes one of South Africa's most authentic Pinotages. His Cabernet Sauvignon is a hidden gem with a very nice ageing potential.
