The estate Pinotage is the crown jewel in the Spioenkop range. Pinotage typically thrives in warmer climates than Elgin so how does winemaker, Koen Roose, pull this off? His secret, he deliberately makes his vines suffer with no irrigation. The result is low yielding vines with small and concentrated berries. This is an intense, concentrated and complex wine. One that displays many characteristics from red cherries, dark forest fruits, black olives, spice and leather. A truly exquisite expression of South Africa's signature varietal.
