NEW, lengthy, impressive.
New screen-printed labels and a series of new selections will greet you with a whole new Stoneboat Pinot House--the wines are just as solid.
This reserve, is made of Pinotage--a South African variety (Cinsault crossed with Pinot Noir) has been barrel-aged for 15 months.
Behold ye who disdain Pinotage--smoked cherries, toasted spice, leather and tobacco, espresso and a seam of wild summer berries dominate the nose. Yes there are those tart and rubber notes we associate with the varietal, but overall, it's an excellent version. On the palate, explosive wild berries, spice and licorice with impressive concentration and weight. Lengthy with a silky finish.
