Barkan Pinotage Supérieur 2006

External Review by Skyview Wine and Liquors:

Color is deep ruby-purple. Typical Shiraz notes on the nose: spicy blue and black fruits such as blackberries and blueberries, notes of licorice and ground black pepper, with hints of new leather and roasted coffee beens. On the palate, the wine offers ripe but not jammy berry fruit overlaid with spice and minerality, laced with subtle notes of vanilla and cedar wood. The wine is well structured, with fine-grained tannins and a medium to full body; yet it escapes heaviness and over-ripeness. The finish is long, brimming with elegant mineral and spicy notes. In style, it is more Northern Rhone than Barossa Valley. A true 'Vin de garde' this Superieur is at present tightly-wound and would benefit from 1-2 hours in a decanter.

A Vineyard was to Solomon the King, and as the love in the Song of Songs, our love started in a vineyard. Our love is a devotion to wine, to premium wines from the finest grapes we can grow, that our vineyard can give. To fulfill our love, we invest all our effort and soul from the beginning, from choosing the site for the vineyard, planning its rows, the choice of vines, the direction the light will fall. We plant with love, train the young vines and bring them to their first harvest: pruning, trellising, watching for signs of illness, watering and waiting. We harvest, we crush the fruit, ferment the wine, press it, age it, blend it and bring it to the bottle with all the care and devotion that we have, in order that the bottle you open will be the best we can give.
