Pinotage 2008 Magnum

R780.00

The Saxenburg Private Collection Pinotage 2008 is an intensely concentrated nose, initially showing loads of biltong, leather, and Christmas cake aromas, but after some time in the glass, the wine evolves to show whiffs of strawberry jam, prunes, and molasses. The tannins have resolved beautifully, making the palate smooth with well-judged acidity and ample fruit sweetness on the finish.

1.5L Magnum.


This extraordinary wine has been stored and matured under optimal conditions in our Vinotéque, for you to get the very best out of your fine wine experience.
