MENU's Wine of the Week. Groot Constantia Pinotage 2017

This cool climate 2017 Pinotage came as a huge revelation when we tasted it with cellarmaster Boela Gerber last week. We absolutely loved it and that is not something you hear from Lynne when she tastes young Pinotage

Pretty and perfumed on the nose with hints of raspberry aromatics from its Pinot parent, with some spice. On the palate, cherry and caramel, soft tannins, more plum fruit, soft and silky; good acid balance and, on the end, the Cinsault parent is visible. R280 on the farm. 19/20
