Ashbourne 2017 Pinotage (Hemel-en-Aarde Valley)

This robust and plush yet well-structured red leads with assertive notes of brambly raspberry, boysenberry and anise seed, with some additional glimmers of mocha and roasted coffee. It's enticing and well-balanced, with a medium-full weight and opulent flavors framed by a solid tannic structure, ample acidity to counter overt richness and a spicy astringency that lingers on the close. It's a baby now, so give it more time to come into its own. Drink 2026–2031. Lauren Buzzeo
