Morgenhof Estate Pinotage 2000

The South African Trophy Wine Show 2002 - Bronze
This is a very full-bodied wine with lots of soft tannins. The wine has a ruby red colour with flavours of black cherries, fresh strawberries and a touch of smokiness from the oak. The palate is well-balanced and fruity, but will benefit by further ageing under proper cellaring.
