Pinotage 2006

Winemaker`s Comments:
Intense fruity nose, compact blackberry, vanilla flavours, which are well supported by a soft oak integration, a dark ruby colour and velvety tannins; this elegant wine can be enjoyed now, it will reach its optimum in 3-5 years, to be enjoyed by itself, but also an ideal accompaniment with beef, game, venison, pasta and cheese.
