96P Tim Atkin MW

Tasting Note:

Winemaker Abrie Beeslaar crafted this wine from the grapes of very old bush vines. A single Pinotage vineyard planted in 1953 is the birthplace of this prized red wine. The majestic old vines offer small berries with extremely concentrated flavours. After fermentation, the wine is placed in new French oak barrels where it ages for 18 months prior to bottling. Dense with dark fruit and black cherry, the wine is sleek and muscular with a luxurious and beguiling presence on the palate. Eminently accessible, this regal wine will age magnificently for 30 years from vintage. First vintage: 2006
