The 2016 Pinotage boasts an excellent deep colour, ripe berries and plums on the nose and palate with a good mouth-feel and lingering aftertaste. With 5 to 10 years’ maturation this wine will start to acquire the velvet density and luxurious chocolate and caramel flavours of its very early Lanzerac predecessors. A full-bodied, complex wine with a beautiful balance between fruit and wood showcasing a good tannin structure that will allow it to age extremely well.

Pair this proudly South African wine with flavourful dishes such as Kalahari venison medallions with a plum sauce, Cajun-spiced ‘blackened’ fish or a traditional Cape Malay curry.

in the vineyard : The grapes for the 2016 Lanzerac Premium Pinotage were sourced from four different vineyard blocks, D10, D7 and D8 from Lanzerac in the Jonkershoek Valley and a bush vine block from Amperbo in Bottelary. The Lanzerac blocks were 20 years (D10), 3 years (D7) and 8 years (D8) old respectively in 2016 and covers an area of 6.18 hectares. The yield for the 2016 vintage was 7.3 tons/hectare. The 3 Lanzerac blocks sits at an altitude of 400m - 420 meters above sea level with mainly deep red decomposed granite soils. Due to the dry and hot weather conditions the 2016 harvest season was earlier than normal.
