Groot Constantia Pinotage 1999

Pinotage, a variety developed in South Africa, produces wines unique to the Cape. This excellent example of the Pinotage cultivar captures the fruit and body which is typical of the variety. This medium to full bodied wine with intense colour and character, is very prominent of its parents (Hermitage and Pinot Noir) due to cool climate of the Constantia Valley. Good concentration of strawberry jam as well as subtle smokiness.
