Dry Sauvignon Blanc (<5g/l or up to 9g/l if TA <2g/l lower) (Pinotage) Unwooded any vintage
Mooiplaas Pinotage is a full bodied wine with a deep purple colour. The nose is reminiscent of plums, which is typical of this unique South African variety, while the palate is rich and full with a long finish. The 12.5% Cabernet Sauvignon adds structure and a small but important element of oak tannin to the wine. Overall the wine is soft, juicy and approachable. Although the style suggests early drinking, it should evolve well over time, with ample structure and concentration to age well for 8 to 10 years.
