Oozing quality and drinkability in this classic dry-grown Pinotage. -----
This is a sumptuous, fleshy Pinotage with distinctly fresh, morello cherry juice on the nose. The palate is certainly ripe but balanced with ample, darkly alluring fruit and a brightening, textural finish.

PERDEBERG WINERY located in Paarl in the heart of the Boland of the Western Cape, enjoys one of the finest wine-growing regions of the Cape. Established as a co-operative in 1941, this now privately owned winery lies at the foot of the magnificent Paardeberg Mountain, named after the scores of Cape Mountain Zebra that once roamed this beautiful mountainside. From a domestic perspective, Perderberg is the most highly decorated winery in South Africa. The unique composition of the vineyards defines Perdeberg’s inimitable style covering multiple micro-climates, 75% of which are un-irrigated, whilst 50% are un-trellised, yielding a very low average of 7.8 tons per hectare. Cellar Master, Albertus Louw, reveals "These dry land bush vines create far better fruit concentration than vines subjected to unnatural vineyard practices, like irrigation. The structure and complexity in these smaller berries bring intense colour, added body and passionate flavours. At Perdeberg Winery, we prefer to set trends rather than follow them and we never compromise the exceptional quality of our wines".
