    2016 Ashbourne Pinotage (Hemel-en-Aarde, SA) 6R

    93 Points from Decanter

    For those who are skeptical of the ability of Pinotage to make fine wine, this is an eye-opener. From a 1.3ha single-vineyard, planted in 1996, this is an ultra-classy wine. There's a hint of smoke on the nose and the palate is full of juicy, ripe, dark-berry fruit with fine acidity and a graphite driven dryness to finish. A hint of oak is evident, imparting extra layers of fine tannins and density to the palate."

    About The Varietal

    Pinotage

    Pinotage stands as South Africa's signature grape variety, cultivated almost exclusively in the region. Its versatile character allows for the production of a spectrum of wines, ranging from basic table wines to opulent, concentrated offerings boasting flavors of black and red fruits, spice, leather, and chocolate.
