The 2019 Pinotage has an oak-driven nose with spiced plum compote, black cherries, a floral essence and a kiss of volatility. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is generous on the palate and offers a sweet frame of oak with vanilla and spiced cherries before offering juicy yet rustic tannins across the mid-palate. The Pinotage concludes with a long, spicy and savory finish that needs at least one more year in bottle. Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2019 Pinotage was the first year they picked the old vines before the younger parcels due to uneven ripening caused by drought. It has a gorgeous and pure bouquet with black cherries, aniseed and light liquorice scents, very well defined with beautifully-integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip on the entry. The acidity gives this Pinotage plenty of tension, a dash of black pepper and a hint of rooibos towards the prolonged finish. Excellent, but I would give it a couple of years. Neal Martin, Vinous
