Kaapzicht Rooiland Pinotage, Bottelary, Stellenbosch, South Africa, 2020
Grapes: 85% Pinotage & 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18 months' ageing in French oak (28% new), Winemaker Danie Steytler.
Dark depth of black plum with an opulent, slightly reductive nose of black cherry, mulberry and stewed plum. The oak is very subtle and integrated, playing to the strengths of the fruit purity and precision. Texturally there is impressive focus, balanced finesse and an elegant mouthfeel punctuated with soft supple black fruits and oak spice.
The red gravel soil in our hallmark Pinotage blocks gives these vineyards their name — Rooiland (red land). Pinotage and its rich history is rooted in the Bottelary Hills and, with this wine, we honour this unique South African cultivar in its classic style: intense, plush, and opulent. A full-bodied dry red wine.
Delicious served with barbecued ostrich steaks or springbok fillet from the braai.
