Winemaker: Beyers Truter. Known for his work with the grape, Beyers Truter can craft a mean Pinotage, and this selection doesn't disappoint. It's brimming with layers of aromas and flavors, from cured meat and sweet smoke to violets and fynbos, all dancing around the spine of juicy wild berry and plum fruit notes. The tannins are fine but gripping, lending a robust structure to the mouthfeel. Notes of pepper, singed baking spice and sweet charred oak carry on long through the finish. Drink 2017–2023.
