Wildekrans Pinotage Barrel Selection 2003

2006 Vintage to be released in May 2007
Veritas 2005 - Bronze

This Pinotage has a pronounced wood essence, a coffee and ripe fruity, youngberry nose which enhances the new oak barrel flavours. The colour has a deep, dark purple centre. This wine has huge intensity, is very complex, velvet soft textures with a long finish on the palate. This wine is once again a real pedigree.
