Bowwood Pinotage 2016

This is only the third vintage of Pinotage made at the Vondeling winery, and yet it's been ranked in Absa's top 10. A truly luxurious and full-flavoured wine; brimful of intense blackberry, cherry, sensuous sweet cloves and subtle vanilla oak.

The Absa Top 10 is the biggest event there is for Pinotage, so you can imagine how impressive Vondeling must be to receive a Top 10 trophy for what was only their third vintage! It's a real testament to the meticulous care that award-winning winemaker Matthew Copeland puts into his wine. Each vintage is three years in the making: after 12 months’ maturation on lees, only the best eight barrels are selected and blended, and then returned to barrel for a further six months, followed by four months in stainless-steel tank. Once bottled, the wine matures for a further year before release. The result is sensational – a gorgeously matured, modern expression of Pinotage, that's drinkable on release and has the potential for further cellaring.

"Drinks more like a Syrah, the 2016 Bowwood Pinotage is smoky with dark, dense fruit and spice" Anthony Mueller
