Post Tree Pinotage 2012/13
Exciting ripe plum, fruitcake, subtle oak with rounded tannins
Tasting Notes: The red berry flavours offer optimum juicy fruit with ripe rounded tannins. The colour is an attractive bright ruby red with a purple rim, typical of a young Pinotage. The flavours of this unique South African cultivar are complex and exciting with ripe plum and fruitcake all beautifully integrated and then finished with subtle oak to for a lingering aftertaste.The winery is nestled in the picturesque Riebeek Valley, against the slopes of the majestic Kasteelberg. This medium-sized winery on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa sources its grapes from the fertile Riebeek Valley and the slopes of the mountain where the climate is very similar to the Mediterranean. Through the years as vineyard practices developed, cultivars were planted in soil and at slopes best suited to them. These well-tended vineyards enable the production of high quality wines which makes Riebeek Cellars the choice of wine buyers internationally.
