Tasting Notes

Due to natural fermentation, this wine has a more intense and more complex aroma profile. The wine is rich, full bodied with attractive dark red fruit, subtle oak spice, and sweet nuances of caramel and vanilla.

– Tariro Masayiti

This is a gorgeous, single-vineyard pinotage with aromas and flavors of crushed blackberries and plums. Full-bodied with round, creamy tannins and an intense and very rich finish. It goes on for minutes with spice and earth undertones. An opulent yet fresh example of this. Drink or hold.

Outstanding intensity of blackberries and blue slate on the nose. Medium body, round and juicy tannins and a succulent, savory finish with orange-peel undertones. Subtle pinotage. Drink or hold.
