Pinotage, Kaapzicht

Kaapzicht's Pinotage comes from 20-year-old bush vines planted in weathered granite soil. The vineyards are all dry land, unirrigated.

Dark depth of black plum with an opulent, slightly reductive nose of black cherry, mulberry and stewed plum. The oak is very subtle and integrated, playing to the strengths of the fruit purity and precision. Texturally there is impressive focus, balanced finesse and an elegant mouthfeel punctuated with soft supple black fruits and oak spice. A blend of 85% Pinotage, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Pinotage, Kaapzicht

Kaapzicht's Pinotage comes from 20-year-old bush vines planted in weathered granite soil. The vineyards are all dry land, unirrigated.

Forward wild fruit, prune with toasted cedar, vanilla and gun smoke. The palate starts out racy, with a red-fruited bright core and firm tannins, developing further complexity of sour cherry, cola, green olives and smoke. A distinctive expression of the variety.
