About this wine

Lemberg Spencer 2017, made from 100% Pinotage displays dark red fruit, brown spice, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and finishes with hints of hibiscus fragrance. On the palate there is good fruit concentration with lingering cherry and tobacco notes and a soft, well balanced structure.

Ageing potential: Drinking well now, but generous in structure to develop depth for another 5 years of optimal cellaring.

Alcohol: 14.67% ABV

    string(569) "South Africa’s very own variety, created in the early 20th century by crossing Pinot Noir and Cinsault. A variety which the home nation has taken to its collective heart, in the right hands and with gentle, delicate handling in the winery, Pinotage is a lush, fruit driven, black cherry jam and white pepper styled variety. When the focus is more on a traditional feel, extended barrel maturation can bolster the variety into creating more of a Bordelais clone. Some great examples exist, famously from Kanonkop and Kaapzicht Estate; both to be found in Stellenbosch."
