Named after George Steytler, who farmed the estate from 1946 to 1984, this gorgeous Pinotage is powerful yet defined. Dense black berry fruit flavors are laced with notes of sweet cedar and spice. Tight tannins provide a firm structure to the rich fruit flavors, and the endless finish offers notes of dark chocolate truffle and black pepper. Drinkable now, but could hold another 5 years.
