Eikendal Pinotage 2018

R195.00

(R1,170.00 for 6 x 750ml)

The Pinotage is a charming and light-bodied wine with great finesse. On the nose an abundance of ripe strawberries and fresh cherries transpire. The palate shows a richness in flavour with very subtle hints of Burgundian oak with velvety tannins and a delightful, smooth finish.
