Strawberry, candied raspberry; super light, bright color.  Suede, red cherries, cranberry, Boston creme pie, nutmeg.  Light palate, soft.  Fleeting white pepper on finish.  Made from 100% bush vine Pinotage  (cross of Pinot Noir and Cinsault).  This is a beautiful example of this grape, sort of a hope for the future of what will be done with this variety. Historically it was over-oaked in style, and generally disregarded as a serious wine.  Whole cluster fermentation, under semi carbonic conditions, aged in barrel 5 months. Dry farmed.  

"Halagasha is a Xhosa term to celebrate a goal, and for us, Pinotage is a celebration of a proudly South African wine. "  Swartland, South Africa
