...I have a dilemma because I really like this wine and have been a fan or their non-traditional purple label for a couple of years now (picture on the left and as we have at present in La Barrique).
However, in the search for more sales the team in SA have decided to go for something a little more (in my opinion) traditional. (Picture on the right)
However, one thing that has not changed is the fantastic quality of this Pinotage and what I think makes it supremely drinkable is the 15% Shiraz that takes the edge off and as such helps soften the often masculine petrolics of Pinotage that can make the varietal overpowering and heavy.
The result is a wine able to be drunk anytime rather than needing a pound of meat to enjoy it with.
Black cherries, red berries and sweet and spicy oak all a the same time.
