Kaapzicht Pinotage is an intense plum colour with a saturated, opaque core. Ripe layers of mulberry, plums, black cherry and dark chocolate/mocha tones, with a trace of minerality and forward oak notes adding further complexity A boisterous display of Pinotage character with firm tannins and good acidity bodes well for at least 3 to 5 years of maturation.

The vines are planted in weathered granite which suits the Pinotage variety to a tee. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel, before this Kaapzicht Pinotage went into 30% new French oak barrels for 18 months.

From Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages:
Savoury, brooding, deep, dark hedgerow fruit. Moreish, finely structured and just fresh enough. Avoids all the potential Pinotage pitfalls. Mouth-watering finish even though it is big and beefy. Drink 2015-2018. 16 Points
