A Pinotage driven blend with Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon

Ruby red, bright, translucent with brown rim, starting to show evolution.
Clean, moderate plus intensity, red berries, bon-bon note, good purity, subtle spice.

Dry with dash residual sugar, moderate acidity, fresh, elegant, good alcohol integration though high at 14% abv, crunchy ripe tannins, savoury texture, black olivey note.
