The 2017 Pinotage Stellenbosch begins with soft feral notes over ripe, spicy fruits. The medium-bodied palate is fresh, vibrant and grippy but I was hoping for just a bit more fruit. The wine is balanced with a decent finish and will be great with peppered steaks, although I have a feeling it will age well and patience will be rewarded. This is currently unreleased in the U.S. Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pinotage has a lovely nose of baked black cherries, black currants, Indian ink and hints of orange blossom, all pure and refined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, well-pitched acidity and an elegant finish that Pinotage skeptics ought to taste in order to change their minds. This is how to do commercial/quality Pinotage. Neal Martin, Vinous
