Pinotage 2006 Magnum

The Saxenburg Private Collection Pinotage 2006 is dark in colour, and ripe and meaty on the nose. There are notes of dark berry compote, marmite and molasses that carry through to the palate, where you will find firm, grippy tannins and a fresh acidity. This wine is full-bodied and like Christmas cake in liquid form!
