    May 2, 2022 - Two hour decant, the nose is expressive, with blackberry, plumb and cinnamon. The palate has plenty of structure, leaning into acidity and tannins equally, with a tongue drying, throat tingling backbone keeping the fruit in mind but almost, but not quite, in the background. Medium bodied with a long finish, this has the ability to age for several years and come into a little more balance and develop more depth, great QPR.

    April 7, 2021 - This wine never fails to amaze me. So much body. Powerful yet round
    Lots of fruit.
    Gorgeous purple color

    March 13, 2021 - Very dark. Cherry, black-Berries, leather and spices on the nose. Full-bodied, nice tannines and enough acid. Nice wine!

    August 20, 2020 - Tasted at the Ritz restaurant, London, over dinner to accompany lamb. This is a wine I know and like, so it offered the best opportunity to enjoy a decent wine at a sensible price, bearing in mind The Ritz marks up its wine by about 400% or maybe more. Served at cellar temperature, which was perfect on a fairly warm evening. Opened and poured. Dark plummy colour. The nose and palate showed good dark berry fruits and lots of earthiness. The wine was smooth and it felt to be well balanced overall and as good as I know it can be. Enjoyable and went well with the lamb.

    April 3, 2020 - First time trying a pinotage. Very nice wine. Fruity. Easy on the pallet. A little heavy on tannins on the finish. Worked well with a spicy rice and vegetable dish.
