Boschendal 1685 Series Pinotage 2017Regular price $50.00
100% Pinotage | Alc 14%
This export-only label is only available outside South Africa. The 2017 vintage was one of the driest years -- a dry winter followed by a dry summer, and less yield than usual resulted in small berries and great fruit concentration for the wines.
Rich, ripe and vibrant red and blackcurrants, tobacco spice and plum with a juicy, savoury mid-palate of fruit. This is a classic example of South Africa’s very own grape varietal.
This wine is made to be consumed within 8 years from vintage, but with the right cellaring conditions, its longevity will span well beyond that.
