Grapes grown on bushvines on the slopes of Simonsberg, up to 65 years of age. Bright ruby-red hues. A textbook Stellenbosch Pinotage with aromatic and spicy aromas of
mulberry, raspberry and cinnamon. Muscular, well integrated tannins add great structure. Flavours of bramble, violets, plums and black berries are balanced by scented new oak. Lengthy finish and a lifting underlying freshness. Maturation potential of 15 years and more.
A fantastic food wine! Red meat or spicy Asian style dishes especially when served young. Excellent with lamb when matured. Vegetarian aficionados can serve it with grilled aubergines or portobello mushrooms.
