Morgenhof Estate Pinotage 1999

This is a very full-bodied wine with lots of soft tannins. The nose shows flavours of liquorice fruitcake and mulberry jam, (not the normal flavours that we are used to on a Pinotage). The palate is big, and the flavours experienced on the nose, follows write through to the aftertaste. This is possibly the best Pinotage that this farm has produced until now.
