Spice Route Pinotage 2018
Intense dark fruit flavours fill the mouth, combining beautifully with sweet vanilla from the oak.
|Winemaker||Charl du Plessis|
Spice Route's Pinotage 2018 is classy rendition of South Africa's signature red wine producing varietal crafted from high quality fruit grown on a single (20-year-old) bush-vine vineyard on the estate's own farm, Klein Amoskuil, in Malmesbury. The 2018 vintage produced an above average yield, and the dryness and intense heat of the long summer days were tempered by relatively cool nights and a cooler harvest time, which resulted in ripe, concentrated fruit with good balancing acidity.
Intense ruby red. Wonderfully rich, concentrated nose, with blackcurrant and cherry aromas to the fore. Intense dark fruit flavours fill the mouth, combining beautifully with sweet vanilla from the oak.
