The inspiration for this wine came from a stubborn belief that Pinotage today has its place among more established varieties. It can produce wines of intrigue and complexity -without becoming harsh, chemical or showing any of the other cruel features that its detractors have reason to name. Treat it meanly and Pinotage will show its angry side. Through its clarity and purity of fruit, its lithe texture and its absence of any kind of aggression. It is not a monster; it is a soul with a heart and one which will repay kindness with abundant generosity of its own.
