Dark garnet with a bright purple rim. Generous aromas of black cherries, clove and raspberry with ripe mulberries and glimmers of spice from gentle oaking. The palate has a savoury edge and a smoot and generous finish. 

Description

The Franschhoek Mountain pass boasts Jan Joubert's Gat bridge. Built in 1825, this is South Africa’s oldest stone bridge that is still in use and makes the most magnificent picnic spot immersed in the full splendour of our magnificent valley. As South Africa’s unique variety, our Pinotage is a worthy tribute to this historic landmark.
