The Mooiplaas Pinotage is a full bodied wine with a deep purple colour. The nose is reminiscent of plums, which is typical of this unique South African variety, while the palate is rich and full with a long finish. Overall the wine is soft, juicy and approachable. This wine should evolve well over time, with ample structure and concentration to age well for 8 to 10 years.
