Waitapu Estate Reef View Pinotage 2019, Northland

Pinotage from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 08-Apr-2021
Deep, even ruby-black with moderate transparency, lighter edged. The nose is gently full and mealy, aromas of smoke, charred meat melded with red cherries, blackberries and spice. Medium-full bodied, flavours of savoury cherries, blackberries, enriched by smoked paprika and charred meat; dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans added to the mix. The palate is broad and savoury, supported by sweet fruit and fine-grained tannin. Balanced acidity carries roasted coffee bean and rich chocolate to a savoury finish. This is a mealy Pinotage with quality of sweet fruit, smoke and chocolatey tannin. Match with grilled meat and black beans over the next 4 years. 13% alc, aged 12 months in seasoned French oak. 17.5/20 pts (88 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $28
