The 2020 Pinotage Stellenbosch exudes both breadth and structure with firm and intense black fruit aromas complemented by hints of oak that elevate the floral and oaky essences. It is highly expressive and boasts fresh blackberry and spice layers that tantalize the palate. Medium to full-bodied with complex layers of dark fruit and a bold, spicy profile, this beautiful Pinotage concludes with a refined and zesty finish with succulent acidity and fine-grained tannins. 72,000 bottles were produced after the wine rested for 16 months in French oak, 80% new. Bravo! Anthony Mueller, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2020 Pinotage Estate is fermented in open-top fermenters and is raised for 16 months in 80% new oak. It has a very pure and precise nose that is a masterclass in what this sometimes derided grape variety can do. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins, fine acidity, very pure and poised with a gentle yet focused, blackberry and bilberry finish. Lovely. Neal Martin, Vinous
