Francois van Niekerk Pinotage
Aromas of black cherries, ripe plums & exotic oak with sweet-fruited palate with well balanced tannins & acidity
Dense purple hues, with evocative aromas of black cherries, ripe plums, nectarines, boysenberry, wild bramble and exotic oak spice. The juicy and sweet-fruited palate entry, combined with crunchy tannins, lures one into a sense of overtness, yet the wine is sublimely elegant and poised. The complex layers of fruit is in perfect harmony with the oak, all bound together by a lively seam of acidity. The finish is pleasantly dry and savoury, with lingering notes of Christmas cake and vanilla pod.
