Diemersdal Pinotage Reserve 2019

Durbanville

A gorgeous, hefty red using South Africa’s unique Pinotage grape. It’s a serious wine, using select parcels of old vine grapes from a centuries old estate. Ageing in French oak barrels adds to this tour de force of weighty black fruit and spice.

Six generations of the Louw family, since 1885, have tended Diemersdal vines, and the estate itself has been in existence since 1698. (There’s even an inventory of wine barrels dated 1702.) History aside, the Durbanville valley, with its backdrop of Table Mountain, is a top spot for viticulture. Well drained, moisture absorbing granite and clay soils combined with rolling sea mists that cool the vines in the afternoon all contribute to the richness and balance of Diemersdal wines. At 14.5% this is a serious Pinotage. Half the grapes are from century old bush vines, half from 23 year old trellised vines, providing dense flavour. 16 months in 60% new French oak adds a lavish layer of spicy vanilla to the bold black fruit. Tasty with lamb.

"Over the last three years this red has notched up a trio of Golds and top scores. A warming glassful" Beth Willard
