Louisvale Ovation 1999

For the first time Louisvale used this unique South African cultivar in a blend to present a new product, called Ovation. Predominantly Pinotage to keep its unique character alive but adding Merlot to make it an exciting wine. A warm wine with lingering black berry flavours to mature for up to 5 years. Enjoy with rich stews and red meats.
