This expressive Pinot Noir entices with aromas of black currants, tea roses and violets, framed by touches of earth, dried orange peel and spice. Finely structured tannins elegantly support tiers of strawberry, black plum and black cherry interwoven with cola and forest floor.
Pinotage shares many traits with Pinot Noir, but the earthiness and bold bramble characteristics distinguish this varietal.
