McFarlane Wines Saturday’s Child Pinotage 2022


Region: Walker Bay

Tasting note:

‘From Stanford Pinotage. 15% whole-bunch fermented before maturation lasting eight months in older 300-litre barrels. Some smoky reduction before black cherry and crushed herbs on the nose. The palate is lean and fresh with fine tannins. It has a pleasing coolness about it (alcohol is 12.5%) but some may find it too angular and geeky.’ – CE 90/100

‘Dark bramble fruit on the nose with brooding spice. The tannins are firm carried by dark, inky fruit and fresh acidity. This wine has incredible intensity and will shows its true potential in 2027 with some bottle age. This would be best enjoyed with a rare Bavette steak, twice cooked fries and a green pepper corn sauce.’ – Winemaker
