Steytler Pinotage 2017, Kaapzicht

About this wine

Occasionally, when the vintage conditions permit and Danie Steytler believes his Pinotage grapes reach exceptional ripeness and complexity, this special cuvée is created and given the five star treatment. With 24 months in new French oak, this is a lavish offering which retains a spine of ultra fine tannin and laser like freshness. Brooding and bold with fine controlled opulence, I have yet to taste a finer example of this often overlooked varietal.  Handcrafted by a family whose lifeblood is wine, the Steytler Range is the culmination of Kaapzicht Estate’s best wines in only exceptional vintages.

Very Limited Stock!

    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."
