Franschhoek Cellar "Stone Bridge" Pinotage 2017 75cl 14% ABV

Sold out
£9.50
Built in 1825, the scenic Franschhoek mountain pass boasts the oldest stone bridge still in use in South Africa. The South African own unique variety, pinotage, is a fitting tribute to this historic landmark.

This fruit-driven Pinotage, which offers "a good, juicy glass of wine," according to winemaker Richard Duckitt, was handled very gently in the cellar to preserve its generous aromas of black cherries, clove and raspberry jam. A smooth and juicy palate, redolent with ripe mulberries, and glimmers of tobacco and spice from gentle oaking, is followed by an appealingly savoury finish.
