Dornier Pinotage 2004

4 Stars Wine Magazine
ABSA Top 10 Finalist

With its intense purple hue, this wine offers everything from earth- and mineral-laced fragrant strawberry aromas well complemented by tones of ripe plum with hints of licorice. The palate provides for an elegant balance between a fine classically styled tannin structure and its rich centered fruit core comprising of wild berry and cedar.
On the finish it entices one with persisting nuances of vanilla and fruit flavour along with a fresh balanced acidity.

AWARDS
Wine Magazine 4*
about the harvest: The winter leading up to the 2004 vintage was very dry, with late rains in December just before veraison. Spring and the start of summer were fairly cool allowing the grapes to become very concentrated and rich in flavour. This was then further followed by a relatively cool growing season which made the grape ripen slowly and achieve phenolic ripeness, the cool conditions also contributed to balanced and healthy fruit.
