About this wine

One of our most exciting finds, this is not a wine which conforms to stereotypes, rather one which has been created to remove them. This cuvée offers elegance, purity, accessibility and genuine charm. Understated notes of blueberry, boysenberry, spiced cherry and cassis seduce the nose and palate. The mineral core of the wine adds interest, backbone and a sense of pedigree more akin to top cru Beaujolais. There is vibrancy and charm here, wrapped up in a polished and modern, yet completely unassuming package. Wines such as Spencer light a beacon for the future hopes of Pinotage in the Cape. This is a thoroughly breathtaking wine.

    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."
