Broken Stone Pinotage 1999

This is the first year that we used only the old vineyard block of Pinotage bush vine. As this vineyard Block is a remarkable 47 years old, production was very low, only 2.7 Ton/Ha. This has resulted in a wine with a cherry red colour. You will be immediately impressed with the rich Havana and plum character of this wine supported by subtle oak.
