Beyerskloof Diesel Pinotage 2007

A full bodied, well structured Pinotage with a deep red colour. An abundance of flavours on the nose and palate, from dark chocolate flavours from the new oak to blackberry and cassis flavours from the grape. Well integrated tannins provides this wine with an elegant and soft mouth feel, a true classic. A perfect example of fruit balance with a gentle middle and delightful finish.
