Whalehaven Pinotage 2018

R158.00

A uniquely South African wine. Red centre with purple edges. Sweet violets, tobacco and a hint of fynbos on the nose. Vibrant redcurrant, mulberry and plum notes on the palate, with layers of juicy red fruits and liquorice on the finish. A bold, barbecue-friendly wine accessible enough for drinking now but with enough structure to benefit from a few years of cellaring.
