Pinotage, with its classic, refined styling and unique, complex character. This is a wine unlike anything else: intense, rich, and savory with a beautiful underlying minerality.

Wine EnthusiastThere's a mentholated lift to the nose of this wine, but it also comes across as slightly liquorous and thick in feel, though not obnoxiously so. Notes of fresh herbs, fennel and rooibos all contribute to its lifted character, which counters the denser notes of plum skin, pressed carnation and sweet spice. It's big and concentrated on the palate, with firm tannins and dry, black fruit-skin flavors alongside tones of licorice, tree bark and bramble. Give this some time; try after 2022.

Wine SpectatorLight mint and sage aromas lead the way, followed by a fresh mix of blood orange and cherry compote flavors. Light tea notes infuse the finish, which lingers thanks to fresh acidity. A more elegant take on the variety. Drink now through 2022. 200 cases imported.
