Welbedacht Barrique Select Pinotage 2005

2007 Juliet Cullinan Wine Connoisseur's Awards - First: Pinotage
2007 International Swiss Air Lines Awards - Bronze Award
A harbinger of things to come, this Maiden Vintage Pinotage displays a seductive elegance more remmenisscant of New World Pinot Noir than old-school Pinotage. Powerful red berry fruit, rather than droopy plums and banana, are interlaced with subtle hints of tomato puree and floral undertones. Although a dry wine our wood selection supplies a palatable sweetness with wafts of coconut and vanilla, followed by a delightful lingering sensation of mocca, cinnamon and pepper. Intense but elegant, with a superbly long finish. The balance of this wine allows us to enjoy its current flirtatious liveliness, but will soften pleasurably for the next three to five years.
