Kaapzicht Stellenbosch Pinotage 2008

Pinotage from South Africa
Review Date : 07-Aug-2013
Very dark, near impenetrable black red colour. Tightly bound and elegant aromas of earthy, black and red berry fruits are complexed by savoury notes of tar and liquorice. Oaking is noticeable, with spice notes. Medium-full-bodied, savoury, sour earthy red and dark berry fruit flavours fill the palate. This is grainy in texture and robust in mouthfeel. Some oxidative characters merge with the savoury fruit. The wine finishes with firm acid and slightly resinous oak. Shy on bouquet, this is a robust and savoury Pinotage. It will develop over the next 4-5+ years. Stellenbosch fruit fermented to 14.88% alc., the wine aged 24 months in 50% new French oak. 17.5-/20 Aug 2013 RRP $35.00
