Bosman Family Vineyards Pinotage Wellington, 2016

South Africa

Grape Variety

Pinotage

Bakery aromas of freshly cooked crusty bread and sour dough combine with those of redcurrants, raspberries, yoghurt and custard pie with a savoury edge. This is really good and interesting Pinotage. It is medium bodied with pure fresh and jammy fruit flavours leading to a firm finish. In 1994, Jannie Bosman, who runs the Bosman vineyard nursery, spotted a batch of Pinotage: in his view, it was exceptional and he just had to plant them in their Hexberg and Haasland vineyards. Despite the great quality of the grapes, Corlea finds Pinotage to be one of the most challenging wines to make and takes great care not to over-extract. What a result!
