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
