Pinotage 2008

Winemaker`s Comments:
A full bodied intense and robust wine with a dense ruby colour offering dark berries on the nose followed by mouth filling earthy and woody aromas. The lingering fruity aftertaste keeps everything the wine has promised before. It compliments red meat dishes, pasta and spicy Asian food. The wine is made to be enjoyed now. It will, however, be relished most 3-5 years after vintage.
