Drostdy Hof Pinotage 2016

Member Review by duncan 906:

This bottle of wine was part5 of a lot I bought from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/129936. Pinotage is a hybrid grape developed in the 1920's in a South African university between pinot noir and cinsault which is now widely grown in that country.I started the bottle last night with my supper of roast pork. There is plenty of a blackcurrant,plum and cherry style fruit with more than a hint of pepper and spice especially on the finish.The tannins were soft but it was well structured. Overall I would say this is a very nice bottle

Drostdy-Hof:
The winery was founded in 1964 but it takes its name from the magistrates building in Tulbagh called De Oude Drostdy which was built in 1804. It is located in the Tulbagh valley in the foothills of the Winterhoek mountains in the Western Cape.A range of red,rose white and sparkling wines are produced
