4 Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Highly popular pinotage blend gains splash cab franc to go with cab and merlot, goes a step up in 17 (89 pts), satisfies even more than last-tasted 15, with spiced dark fruits, smooth tannins from older oak.
A deep ruby red colour, with notes of blackcurrant, tealeaves and vanilla spice on nose, which follows through to the palate. A well balanced structure with fresh acidity and dry appetizing finish. This wine will keep developing in the bottle for the next 7-10 years.
