Pinotage is South Africa’s signature grape. Add its distinctive, spicy, coffee aromas and sumptuous berry flavours to hearty Shiraz and juicy Ruby Cabernet grapes, and you have one knock-out blend. Got Red comes in at a price you’ll love, too!
"Delightful. Very easy to drink, nice all round wine"
Talented winemaker Ben Jordaan – or Bokkie, as his friends know him – makes easy, everyday wines right up to stunning super-premium blockbusters. But what he likes most of all is to surprise us with something we haven’t seen before. South Africa’s coffee and spice Pinotage grape is a no-brainer (we love it!) but adding Shiraz for its smoky raspberry notes and Ruby Cabernet for colour and juicy fruit has been an overwhelming success. There’s something about the Western Cape vineyards that brings out the best in these grapes, too. Soaring temperatures are soothed by the gentle ‘Cape Doctor’ sea breezes, and the sunny mountain-side slopes make ideal ripening sites. Ben reckons this is a red for pizza and for parties or for everyday suppers.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
